OSHA confined space training includes a comprehensive set of guidelines and best practices tailored to safeguard the well-being of workers engaged in tasks within confined spaces.

Top 5 Hazards in Confined Space
According to HAZWOPER Center, the top five hazards working in confined spaces and how they are mitigated through OSHA confined space training include:
Engulfment - Certain jobs put workers at risk of engulfment, especially in situations involving liquids or the flow of solids. Engulfment is often deadly.
Atmospheric Hazards - Within confined spaces, there is a potential presence of hazardous atmospheres, such as toxic gas or low oxygen levels. Workers are trained by OSHA confined space training to address atmospheric hazards through monitoring and ventilation.
Fire & Explosion Hazards - Fire and explosion risks are often heightened in confined spaces due to the presence of flammable substances.
Entrapment - Entrapment arises when workers become stuck or trapped in confined spaces, typically due to moving parts or material accumulation.
Rescue Issues - In emergencies involving confined spaces, rescue operations require specialized skills and confined space training to ensure safe and effective rescues.
