OSSA Monitor/ Entry

This Confined Space Monitor Training Standard has been established to provide Training Providers with direction as to the minimum training program content requirements to meet the needs of the OSSA Member companies. A training program meeting this Standard would typically require 4 hours to complete, depending on class size, number of instructors and any class room props used for practical demonstration and testing.

It should be noted that the training required to meet this standard focuses on the minimum training requirement needs of the End-User. Successful completion of this Confined Space Monitor training certifies the End-User to act as a Confined Space Monitor for Confined Space Level 2 and Confined Space Level 3 entries and may certify the End-User to engage in Confined Space Level 1 Monitor.
