Sadly, people are killed or seriously injured every year in the UK whilst working or trying to rescue others from confined spaces without the proper training or equipment.

This happens in a wide range of industries, from those involving complex plant to simple storage vessels.

Over the years hundreds of people from many leading companies have trained here – helping them and their teams work safely.

Course highlights all the places and job tasks where there may be a specific hazard such as tanks, pits, wells, chambers, holes, tunnels, tanks and storage vessels.

Medium Risk entries require the use of escape breathing apparatus, either because the risk of a hazardous atmosphere is significant or the time taken to evacuate increases risk to entrants.

Course includes:

  • H&S Laws & Regulations – understanding your legal duty Confined Space Regulations 1997, Management of H&S at Work Regulations 1999 & H&S at Work Act 1974
  • Responsibilities of employers and employees – in particular the need to avoid entry into confined spaces unless it is not reasonably practicable to do so
  • Definitions and types of confined spaces
  • Hazards and risks – necessary precautions required
  • Understanding safe systems of work with particular reference to ‘permits to work’ where appropriate

  • How to conduct a risk assessment and advice on how to collate method statements that operatives can understand and easily follow
  • How emergencies arise, the need to follow prepared emergency procedures and the dangers of not doing so
  • Explanation and demonstration of confined space equipment including breathing apparatus
  • Covers safe exit procedures for which there is a practical element where delegates use breathing apparatus to practice actions to be taken in an emergency situation.
  • Test paper/ questions/ handouts and review
