Confined Space Entry & ‘Basic’ Rescue

Participants will learn to identify the various types of hazards that may occur when working within or around a confined space. Participants will demonstrate practical skills with a breathing apparatus, and enter a confined space simulator to understand what it is like to work within a confined space.

Workers should consult their employer to determine which orientation is accepted on their work sites. *We also offer the full-day Energy Safety Canada course for those who require that certificate. This course replaces the former OSSA-approved Confined Space training courses.
