Confined Space Safety

(MWWA Course ID: MWWA 21-019, Wastewater: BC-2021-3620)

Did you know that 67% of all deaths related to confined spaces occur when attempting a rescue? And in nearly all of those cases there was no written plan or adequate equipment. Both water and wastewater employees commonly enter a variety of confined spaces: valve & meter vaults, manholes, tanks and trenches. It is important that utility workers understand the hazards of confined spaces and what procedures should be followed to stay safe.

This half day class will provide attendees with an overview of what constitutes a confined space as well as the proper equipment and procedures that must be followed. It will also provide an overview of the resources available to help utilities prepare written plans and checklists.

 Learning Objectives:

 Understand the hazards of confines spaces and how to properly protect workers;
 Review the resources available to help utilities develop written programs and checklists;
 RLearn about the types of equipment needed and how to properly enter a confined space.

 

 This course is approved for 2 TCHs (Training Contact Hour) for Massachusetts Water and Wastewater Operators.
It will be taught using the Zoom platform.  Participants will need to have a reliable highspeed internet connection and computer device with both video and audio capability.
