Provide employee training.

You must:
• Provide training to each employee involved in permit-required confined space activities, so they acquire the understanding, knowledge and skills necessary to safely perform assigned duties.
– Establish employee proficiency in their confined space duties.
– Introduce new or revised procedures as necessary.
• Employers can determine employee proficiency by:
– Observing employee performance during training exercises that simulate actual confined space conditions.
– A comprehensive written examination; or
– Any other method that is effective for the employer.
You must:
• Provide training at the following times:
– Before an employee is first assigned to duties covered by this part.
– Before there is a change in an employee's assigned duties.
– When there is a permit-required confined space hazard for which the employee has not already been trained.
– If you have reason to believe that there are either:
■ Deviations from your procedures for permit-required confined space entry; or
■ Employee knowledge or use of your procedures is inadequate.
