OSH Students Perform Mock Confined Space Entry
October 17, 2016
OSH students received some great hands-on experience performing a mock confined space entry. OSH professor Derek McCormick partnered with the City of Grand Rapids to perform a mock confined space entry. Students conducted air sampling, set up ventilation, and personnel retrieval equipment to simulate the requirements to safely enter a confined space.
Carrie Rivette from the City of Grand Rapids explained how city workers enter confined spaces and their confined space permitting system. Professor McCormick and Ms. Rivette are exploring additional ways to provide experiences that will assist in the education of OSH students such as storm water assessments that will be part of OSH 480 in the winter semester.
