Confined spaces present unique challenges for workers and require comprehensive understanding of diverse hazards as well as permitting processes. EI safety professionals are available to identify your qualifying confined spaces, provide onsite assessments of hazards, debate program options and deliver training on a variety of procedural levels.
Confined space responsibility and training requirements often depend on the rescue options available to your facility. Planning is crucial, and EI safety professionals recognize that an emergency situation should not be the instance when you realize your program has deficiencies.
Confined Space Training
EI’s confined space training focuses on the complexities of the permit process such as understanding the difference between alternate entry and reclassifying a confined space. EI safety professionals are well-versed on the Confined Space Standards and work to simplify these challenges by sharing their unique expertise in terms of atmospheric hazards, engulfment hazards, entrapment hazards and a wide variety of other hazards common to confined spaces.
EI offers instruction at the awareness, rescue non-entry and rescue entry levels, as well as a Train-the-Trainer option for rescue non-entry. EI safety professionals will work with your existing equipment (PPE, rescue devices, harnesses, gas meters, etc.) and ensure workers understand all of the responsibilities involved with the distinctive roles on a confined space entry team.

EPA’s approval of the ASTM E1527-21 Standard came by a notice of Final Rule published December 15, 2022, following an extended review process.
