Confined Space Construction Awareness

The Confined Spaces Construction Awareness safety course from National Trench Safety is intended to teach participants about confined spaces in construction and learn how to use their existing knowledge of confined spaces while learning about safety procedures and current regulations.

Confined spaces include manholes, crawl spaces, and tanks not intended for continuous occupancy and may be difficult to exit in an emergency. Because construction workers often perform tasks in such confined spaces, these spaces may present inherent physical and atmospheric hazards. This course will address such hazards in order to provide training prior to entering such a worksite.

NTS’ Confined Spaces Construction Awareness safety course offers participants a thorough and up-to-date understanding of the equipment, systems, and procedures necessary to assist workers in reducing the risks of workplace accidents associated with confined spaces.

Confined Spaces Construction Awareness Safety Course covers:

  • An introduction to confined spaces, and the backgrounds and definitions associated with them
  • Common types of confined spaces in construction
  • Common hazards associated with confined spaces
  • Importance of confined space location recognition
  • Importance of signage and labels
  • Reporting potential hazards
  • Summary of confined spaces in construction
