CONFINED SPACE ENTRY FOR SUPERVISORS

OVERVIEW

Many people are killed or seriously injured each year in confined spaces. Tragically those killed in such accidents are not only people who work in confined spaces but also those who try to rescue them without proper training or equipment. We have, therefore, developed a Confined Space course for advanced levels of instruction.
