This training session on permit-required confined spaces is designed for construction workers designated as attendants for these spaces. You know that construction sites change constantly as the work progresses. That means confined spaces change, too. In fact, confined spaces can be created during the course of a project, even if none existed at the project’s start. This session will help you identify the hazards of confined space entry, including the signs, symptoms, behavioral effects, and consequences of hazard exposure. Duration: 34 Minutes.

ORIGINALLY PRESENTED FEB. 25, 2014 Course Presenters: Chris Anderson, Deputy Director, Strategy and Policy Office, Department of Homeland Security Office of Infrastructure Protection Course Length: 1.5 Hours Course Credit Hours: 1.5 PDHs Course Overview: Join this webinar to understand the consequences and cascading risks caused by natural and man-made disasters and to develop a mitigation strategy and recovery plan for mission assurance and greater regional resilience. In February 2013, President Obama issued Executive Order (EO) 13636 on Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity and Presidential Policy Directive (PPD) 21 on Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience, highlighting the need to augment our existing focus on managing critical infrastructure risk. In response, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released the 2013 National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP): Partnering for Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) developed a voluntary framework for reducing cyber risks, to be issued in February 2014. To support adoption of the Framework, DHS is establishing a voluntary program in mid-February of this year. This webinar will highlight how companies and agencies can work jointly at the state, regional and local levels to inventory their infrastructure and better understand the consequences and cascading risks caused by natural and manmade disasters and to develop a mitigation strategy and recovery plan for mission assurance and greater regional resilience.
