(Presseportal openBroadcast) - Allstar Enviro Safety is excited to announce that their lead Safety Consultant, Arliss T.E. Levine, has passed her audit to instruct the Confined Space Entrant and Monitor program. Arliss has been delivering this program for many years as a third party instructor. OSSA Confined Space Entry/Monitor is an Alberta BC Safety course (an OSSA Licensed Provider). The lead instructor — Arliss T.E.Levine, CRSP, CHSC, B.A. is with Allstar Enviro Safety training and is an accredited contract instructor through ABCS.

Description: Confined spaces are high hazard environments that frequently disable or kill workers entering them throughout North American workplaces. These spaces may have restricted entrances or exits or have atmospheric hazards that are not immediately apparent. Gas and chemical hazards that have acute or chronic effects are H2S, Oxygen deficiency and enrichment, Carbon Monoxide, Ammonia and Benzene. This could lead to flammable, explosive, corrosive or toxic environments. Confined spaces might have physical hazards such as rotating or reciprocating equipment, overhead hazards, slippery surfaces and electrocution or extreme weather conditions. Workers may become complacent if these conditions are not visible or difficult to detect with their own senses. There may be limited access or egress, making it difficult to perform an effective rescue. Part 5 of the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Act is covered in this theory program. Both Entrants and Monitor responsibilities are highlighted. This is a 6 hour plus seminar.

Many of the Oilsands companies by Ft McMurray have been requiring these training seminars prior to working in confined and restricted spaces. OSSA governs the safety certification for Syncrude, Suncor Energy, Albian Sands Shell and CNRL. Surrounding companies that contract to the OSSA sites normally request this program rather than the Confined Space Basics seminars.

In addition, employers want to educate their staff that are potentially going to enter or work within these confined spaces, such as open and closed topped tanks, vessels, pits, bermed areas, and towers. The course helps define the difference between those spaces and restricted spaces such as , utility vaults and, crawl spaces. Since atmospheric and physical hazards can rapidly enter those spaces, employers are concerned about changes in conditions that could cause disability and death. Rescue planning and hazard assessments are key functions that are covered in this 6 hour plus theory program.

This classroom based program is followed by an exam that earns the OSSA designation. This is recognized by the Oilsands Safety Association which governs the content of the theory seminar. Should the student need further physical skills, such as Supplied Air Breathing apparatus training or Fire OSSA Confined Space Entry/Monitor is an Alberta BC Safety course (an OSSA Licensed Provider). The lead instructor — Arliss T.E.Levine, CRSP, CHSC, B.A. is with Allstar Enviro Safety training and is an accredited contract instructor through ABCS.
