Restricted and Confined Space Awareness – Winter 2022 (3 hours)

Did you know that restricted space can become a deadly confined space, and without the right measures in place, you might not even realize it until it’s too late? Restricted and confined spaces are common on farms and ranches but frequently go unrecognized until something goes wrong. This course is designed to help you identify these spaces and the things that can be done to keep people safe. This course is an awareness level only and will not provide participants with certification for entry into confined spaces.
