Due to their nature, confined spaces are dangerous areas in which to work. Limited air flow can cause the build-up and entrapment of hazardous atmospheres. In addition, potential physical hazards may include engulfment, extreme temperatures, slippery surfaces, moving parts, and others.
Because the hazards of hazardous waste cleanup sites are only compounded when confined spaces are involved, it's important for workers to be aware of their roles and responsibilities to ensure safe confined space entry operations.
This HAZWOPER training course is designed to provide necessary information to help prevent injuries, illnesses, and fatalities that may result from working in or around permit-required confined spaces at hazardous waste cleanup sites.

- Intended Audience: Any employees who may be involved or expected to engage in hazardous waste cleanup operations where the employee may be exposed to hazardous substances, health hazards or safety hazards. These cleanup workers include:
- General site workers, such as equipment operators, general laborers and supervisory personnel
- Workers on the site only occasionally for a specific limited task (ie: groundwater monitoring, land surveying or geo-physical surveying) and who are unlikely to be exposed over permissible exposure limits
- Workers regularly on the site who work in areas which have been monitored and fully characterized indicating that exposures are under permissible exposure limits where respirators are not necessary, and the site characterization indicates that there are no health hazards or the possibility of an emergency developing
