Manage occupational risks before working in confined spaces

CLOSE is intended for prevention officers, supervisors, clients, principal contractors, designer-integrators and rescuers.

It is aimed at people qualified for risk management with respect to confined space work.

It applies to all types of confined spaces and takes into consideration the main potential hazards within the context of Quebec’s standards and regulations.

A five-module approach:

  • 1 Describe the confined space
  • 2 Describe the work
  • 3 Determine the potential hazards
  • 4 Choose preventive measures
  • 5 Estimate risk before and after implementing
       preventive measures
