What You Need to Know about MI Safety’s OSSA Confined Space Entry & Monitoring Safety Training

Edmonton, Alberta is known for its thriving oil sands industry as well as other industrial sectors such as manufacturing, construction, and agriculture. If you are currently looking for confined entry safety training courses, Edmonton’s MI Safety has two different options that you can choose from: the OSSA Confined Space Entry and Monitoring course or the online Confined Space Entry and Monitoring course.

Determining which of the two courses is right for you involves knowing what each entails. The Confined Space Entry and Monitoring safety training course focuses primarily on the basics of what you need to know when working in a confined space environment; it does not include monitor training.

The Oil Sands Safety Association course, on the other hand, prepares individuals with all the technical and legislative information required for working on OSSA member sites. However, the OSSA accredited course does not provide training on rescue plans, equipment, and hazards because OSSA member sites already have their own rescue teams. MI Safety Inc. offer a number of different safety training courses in Edmonton and Devon including Fall Protection, First Aid & CPR, Ground Disturbance, Enform H2S Alive, OSSA Confined Space training and OSSA Regional Orientation.
