Furthermore, the OSSA Confined Space Entry & Monitoring course covers the duties of a designated Confined Space Monitor as defined by OSSA standards. Those completing the OSSA Confined Space Entry & Monitoring Training course will be certified to work as Confined Space Monitors for Levels 1, 2 and 3 confined spaces.

Another objective of the OSSA Confined Space Entry & Monitoring course is to ensure participants demonstrate proficiency in keeping track of other workers in confined spaces. A Confined Space Monitor must also be able to communicate with those the confined space, respond to an emergency in a confined space, and understand all the duties and responsibilities of a Monitor.
