Course Objectives 

The major goal of the OSSA confined space safety and training programme is to introduce participants to the risks involved with entering and working in restricted spaces. The other goal is to ensure that pupils have a basic awareness of controlling related hazards. In addition to watching out for one another, participants should be able to maintain track of other workers in restricted locations.

Furthermore, the OSSA confined space safety and training programme includes the responsibilities of an authorized Confined Space Monitor, as outlined in OSSA regulations. The training ensures that the Monitor can interact with others in the confined area, respond to crises, and understand their tasks and obligations.
