To provide relevant and appropriate training to individuals those that enter and work in confined spaces, stand by attendants and supervisors of Confined Spaces ensuring that the syllabus and instruction materials are in strict accordance with the CSA, OSHA, ANSI, and WORKSAFEBC Occupational Health and Safety Regulation.


The training course is based on CSA Z1006-10 (R2015) and ANSI/ASSE Z117.1-2009 standards for safety requirements for Confined Spaces. The training provided by Metro Safety Training Inc. consists of two parts. The first part is based on the theoretical instruction from our in-depth training modules. These consist of slide shows, videos, lecture materials, and questionnaires. The second part is the practical portion. This part consists of becoming familiarized with the Confined space equipment and use. Our Basic program is 4 hours long and is aimed at training attendants.
