Employers are required by law to provide a safe and healthy workplace for their employees so must be aware of all confined spaces in their work environment.

Confined Space Training Course Overview:
Confined space training protects Houston students, their peers, families, and friends from injury in small, occupiable, restricted-egress spaces. Such spaces can become dangerous traps tending to accumulate harmful gases, fumes, or other materials or hazards that may arrest and injure or kill you. OSHA uses the term "permit-required confined space" (permit space) to describe a confined space that has one or more of the following characteristics: contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere; contains material that has the potential to engulf an entrant; has walls that converge inward or floors that slope downward and taper into a smaller area which could trap or asphyxiate an entrant; or contains any other recognized safety or health hazard, such as unguarded machinery, exposed live wires, or heat stress.
