A TEAM APPROACH TO SAFE CONFINED SPACE ENTRY
6-8 HRS / ONE DAY
This 6-to 8-hour course will demonstrate the many advantages of using a “team approach” to confined space entry. The Confined Space Entry Team (Entrant, Attendant and Entry Supervisor) consists of interrelated roles and each is critical to the overall safety of your entrants. The workshop includes practical application of running a successful entry operation from preparing the initial entry permit to preplanning for effective non-entry rescue. Seeing the “big picture” of a safe, productive entry will enable your team members to carry out their duties while keeping a watchful eye on overall job safety. This workshop will increase the safety and efficiency of your entry operations while training your Confined Space Entry Team to work together as a cohesive unit.

16 HRS / TWO 8-HR DAYS
Focusing on current OSHA and ANSI requirements, this course will provide the knowledge and skills for establishing or improving a worksite’s comprehensive fall protection program. Trained as Competent Persons for Fall Protection, participants will receive practical experience in recognizing fall hazards and developing appropriate measures for reducing or eliminating these hazards. Detailed preplan forms will be used to guide participants through the process of evaluation and preparing for fall hazards in the workplace. This will include Roco’s “Fall Hazard Survey,” which identifies fall hazards and uses the “hierarchy of fall protection” to provide the most protective and feasible solutions.
Roco’s “Suspended Worker Rescue Preplan” will be covered in a live field exercise as well as demonstrations and practice rescues utilizing pre-engineered rescue systems. Participants will be exposed to a variety of modern fall protection equipment and receive guidance in selecting the proper equipment for greatest safety and efficiency.
ONE 8-HR DAY
This 8-hour Trench Competent Person course is intended for Owners, Supervisors, Managers, Operators, and Safety personnel who are required to oversee Excavation and Trench work. Due to the extreme hazards involved, OSHA 29 CFR 1926.650 Subpart P (Excavations) requires at least one person be trained as a Competent Person for excavation sites, which includes trenching activities. OSHA has recognized that a higher level of training and experience is required than a normal worker would possess. OSHA relies on the Competent Person for certain activities or safety procedures at a construction site such as design, daily inspections, and supervision. If you are supervising an excavation/trench job or are signing off on a permit for excavation work…you need this class!
