Entry into a confined space represents a significant risk of serious injury or death to individuals not prepared for the hazards they may encounter. University of Waterloo's Confined Space Program is designed to identify and control all hazards associated with entry into confined spaces.
Under no circumstances is anyone to enter a confined space under University of Waterloo control without adhering to the University’s confined and restricted space program.

All workers that enter a confined space on campus must complete the University’s Confined Space training or provide documentation of training.
Workers must also attend specific training sessions for each confined space. Specific training requirements are identified in the relevant plan for each confined space. The supervisors of the entrants and attendants will usually deliver this training.
