This Complimentary Session Includes Discussions On:

  • Common Challenges in Managing Confined Space Programs
  • Overview (and Opportunities) of the new CSA Standard 
  • Developing Effective Confined Space Programs 


In 2006, the Ministry of Labour (MOL) made significant changes to the confined space regulations in Ontario. Many Ontario businesses continue to struggle with the implementation of the new requirements. Challenges commonly include the interpretation of the definition of “confined space”, improper classification of spaces, poor documentation and ineffective training.  In 2011, the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) released a new standard, “Z1006 - Management of Work in Confined Spaces” which provides useful guidance to assist organizations in effectively managing this potentially high risk work.

Have a Question for Our Course Leader?

Pinchin delivers close to a hundred seminars per year and we recognize that some people are not comfortable asking potentially sensitive questions in an open forum. We will gladly deal with these one-on-one but if you want to email the question ahead of time, we'll make sure we answer it during the seminar. Send questions to General Inquiries at our Head Office.
