Every worker entering or working near a confined space is required to have adequate training. We provide Confined Space Awareness / Entry training that thoroughly covers the legislation. Focus is on identifying and working safely within or around a confined space and we can do it in 4 hours at your site. We also offer working at heights training.

Confined Space Awareness / Entry Training

Any worker exposed to the hazards of a confined space require training based on Ont. Reg. 632/05. We come to your site to offer a comprehensive review of the regulation and workplace requirements.

What does the regulation say, how does it apply to us, how do we make sure we are working safely and compliant? By the end of our 4-hour course you and your employees will have solid working knowledge of the legislation and their responsibilities within it.

We take the time to review your permit process and documentation to ensure consistency throughout your organization. We have had great feedback from this program and believe that our creativity and ability to adapt it to your workplace make it invaluable.

Zero Cost Training Solution

We recognize that training costs can be taxing on all organizations.

We can help reduce the cost significantly.  We call it “Zero-Cost Training” and it has been extremely successful for our clients.

For companies whom we provide regular confined space support to, On-Site Rescue will provide up to 4 Confined Space Awareness / Entry course per year for your employees. Have you ever had specialty trades arrive onsite with no training to enter a confined space?

Through some basic coordination we can provide training at your site to allow the work to move efficiently forward.
