Confined Spaces in Agriculture

This training will give each participant an understanding of the hazards which confined spaces can present, and an awareness of the many types of spaces which may be considered a confined space. Participants will not be permitted to enter a confined space at any time unless they complete Confined Space Entry training. 

Work in confined spaces can present a significant risk for workers performing such work when appropriate precautions are not taken. To protect workers entering, working in or working near confined spaces, the University requires that such work is performed following very stringent procedures.  

This seminar is specifically designed for any U of G employees who are involved in confined space entries during work at the Dairy Barn, those who work in vicinity of confined spaces and their supervisors, to ensure that participants are fully aware the activities required for safe work when an entry is being performed.
