Confined Spaces for Competent Persons (CON 401)
Who Is It For
CON 401 is for people that intend to work as confined space competent-persons and safety professionals. Successful completion helps participants identify confined spaces, evaluate confined space hazards, classify and reclassify confined spaces, and develop a working knowledge of confined space regulations in construction and general industry since the construction and general industry regulations are similar. This class assumes participants have prior confined space entry experience.
The course includes a deep dive into construction and general industry confined space regulations, their requirements, the definitions of confined spaces and permit required spaces, classification, declassification, reclassification, confined space hazard assessments, alternate entry procedures, rescue considerations, equipment selection, employee training needs, and related topics. Confined space classification and hazard assessment forms are typically provided. Only employers may designate competent-persons. This is a regulatory and code-driven class.
