Confined Space Requirements
« on: April 17, 2013, 02:46:59 PM »
We are in the annual testing process for our confined space certified employees and I have a question (or two) for anyone who has confined space certified positions.

1) do you require everyone in a department that has the potential to enter a confined space to be certified or do you only require certain people/groups of people to be certified instead of the entire department?

For example; we only REQUIRE our day shift plant operators to be certified but we send (encourage) night shift operators for testing as well in the event they have to fill in on day shift. Do you require your entire department/similar positions or just specific ones. 

2) what have you done, or would you do, if someone that is required to be certified can not maintain it for medical or other reasons?

If you would prefer to email me directly my email address is

Thank you in advance for your response.
