Course Overview

This OSHA Confined Space Entry Competent Person/Supervisor course aims to provide confined spaces employees with an understanding of hazardous conditions, define what constitutes a competent person, and outline acceptable safe working conditions. While every worker within a confined space should be competent, this course is geared toward the ultimate and legally bound competent person within a work site: an entry supervisor. At a work site, there may be one or more supervisors, and each supervisor must gain the knowledge and experience necessary to be deemed a competent person. We will look at an entry supervisor’s job responsibilities as the competent person more thoroughly throughout this course.
