Course Background

Confined Spaces are found in almost all industries and business sectors. Every year hundreds of employees die every year from ignorance about working in such areas. The employees lose their life, the employers lose their best workers and also get fined by authorities. In the US and US administered territories OSHA regulations (Occupational Health and Safety Administration) apply. Elsewhere other regulatory agencies that have jurisdiction in that area have similar laws and rules regarding working in confined spaces. OSHA has clearly defined when an enclosed space needs to have a permit, but many business owners and managers are unaware of this, until it is too late.

The shocking fact is not only that so many workers get killed due to ignorance of working in such places, but also that most of these accidents are easily preventable by proper training and awareness.

Why you should get this course now?

If you are a worker or manager in a business or industry where your own work, or the work that you supervise,  could be in an enclosed space then be aware that this could fall under the definition of a Permit Required Confined Space. It is very important to be aware of enclosed space entry by taking adequate necessary precautions. Also your organization should have a proper permit system in place, so that you can manage these activities without any accidents or mishaps. This  OSHA confined space safety training course, is the fastest and easiest way to learn about working in these areas. Furthermore, you could take the associated exam and also get a certificate and an electronic badge on passing. This demonstrates to people outside your organization, whether they are your customers, clients,  employers or government inspectors, that you have undergone this training.

Why you should get this course from Abhisam?

Abhisam is the world leader in online training as well as  traditional classroom type training for technical professionals. We have trained thousands of engineers and technicians all over the world on all continents.

Why should I not read books instead?

There are many training manuals and books related to occupational safety and health, but very few on this particular topic. Those are good references, but you will appreciate that reading books and understanding them is slower than learning via animations, narrations and actual cases that are shown in the course. If you value your time, then you will appreciate that this course is the fastest way to learn this interesting but complex subject. You will also not get certified by reading a book.

Can I not get this information online for free elsewhere?

Of course you can spend hours of your valuable time, surfing the internet and trying to absorb all the info out there. But you will quickly find that it saps your energy, you spend 100 hours of your precious time trying to find nuggets of useful information from multiple sources and in the end there is no guarantee that the information that you collect is useful, truthful and authentic. By taking this  online training course, you can learn all the important need to know stuff in a matter of a few hours. The structure of the course is carefully designed, by a team of subject matter experts and learning designers,  to help you absorb everything in a logical manner. Lastly if you take the associated exam, you get a free certification, which you can never get by merely searching for information or reading books.
