Confined Space training objectives are to assist in fulfilling management’s obligations to ensure workers are trained and competent to deal with Confined Space Non-Entry rescues. Completing this training will reduce the risk of accidents, which result from the lack of knowledge and compliance with the Ministry of Labour Confined Space Regulation O. Reg. 632/05. CBHM is OWWCO director approved for certifying participants with CEU value 0.7 for the full confined space program and CEU value 0.4 for the refresher confined space program.
Confined Space Training Theory Outline (8 Hours):

Important Information Regarding Confined Space Training
- Do you require Non-Entry or Entry Rescue training? Non-Entry Rescue training (what CBHM offers) involves teaching how to rescue a person via a tripod and winch connected to worker fall arrest without having anyone enter the confined space.
- What is Entry-Rescue? Entry-Rescue training is a last resort option as having more personnel enter an area that has already incapacitated one or more persons places the rescuer at considerable risk. Due to the unique nature of confined space rescues, there is specialized equipment necessary to perform a safe and successful rescue.
- Are your employees new to working within your confined spaces, or are they refreshing their knowledge?
- Do you have policies & procedures in place specific to your confined spaces? If not, CBHM can develop these with you.
- Do you have your confined space entry permits?
Note: Ministry of Labour standards recommend that you should have both your Confined Space Theory & Practical training. The practical portion will take approximately half a day, to a full day of training depending on how many participants there are and their experience level.
