Confined Space Train the Trainer UPDATED!

For the last five or so years we have enjoyed considerable success with Version 3 of our Confined Space Entrant, Attendant, and Entry Supervisor curriculum.

Nonetheless, we are excited to release Version 4. Jim Teaching1 On July 14-15, 2015 in Medford, Oregon we will be holding our first train-the-trainer seminar using Version 4 of our confined space training materials. This class is being held in association with the Southern Oregon Chapter of the ASSE (American Society of Safety Engineers).

Important enhancements include:

  • Updated Rules: Both OROSHA and Federal OSHA have released new versions of the confined space rules that deal with construction activities (and in Oregon, some general industry activities). The curriculum includes information that can be presented if your organization is involved with construction. These changes primarily impact the Entry Supervisor course but all changes affecting your program will be covered in this train-the-trainer session.
  • Added Module on Assessing Rescue Complexity: At the most-recent GOSH conference I presented a seminar that provided users with tools so they could assess a confined space and determine the technical complexity of any needed rescue operation. This seminar has now been adapted for use in our train-the-trainer class to help you determine your location's ability to respond to an emergency.
  • Changes to the Entrant and Attendant Training Program: This class still follows the same basic, four-module learning path but there's an added emphasis on identifying permit spaces and the learning path has been compressed in the entrant/attendant class to focus on achieving the learning objectives more efficiently. Some of the questions on the Progress Checks have been re-written, a new post-test has been developed, and information on chlorine, sulfur dioxide, and ammonia has been added to the workbook and PowerPoint.
  • Changes to the Entry Supervisor Training Program: The new program reflects the updated rules and can also be used to train confined space competent persons which are defined under the new federal confined space construction rules. The worksheets in the case study have been re-designed. We have also added additional information on ventilation practices, atmospheric monitoring, multi-employer worksites, and emergency planning.

To acknowledge those who attended this class in years past and are looking to renew their certificates, we are offering a special tuition of $400 per person for the Medford class. (We can't offer this discount through our website, so sign up over the phone or download and fax or email this enrollment form.)

As always, if you have any questions, please give us a call at 800-551-8763.
