Every year people are injured and/or killed working in confined spaces - often due to lack of danger awareness, poor training or improper safety equipment. The Confined Spaces Regulations 1997 place clear duties on employers in respect of work carried out by employees in confined spaces. Work within a confined space must be carried out in accordance with a safe system of work. A confined space is somewhere with restricted means for entry/exit and/or is not designed for continuous occupancy. Many workplaces contain areas that are not considered 'confined spaces' because they are large enough for people to enter and perform jobs. E.g. tanks, vessels, silos, storage bins, hoppers, vaults, pits, manholes, tunnels, equipment housings, duct-work, pipelines, etc. This course helps workers understand the restrictions/challenges that 'confined spaces' can place on certain duties. The course addresses safety concerns, safe working procedures, contingency planning for a rapid exit, rescue and recovery during an emergency.
This course is suitable for individuals working in industries such as construction, manufacturing, engineering and utilities where they may be required to work in confined spaces. This includes workers carrying out maintenance, repair or installation work in areas such as tanks, containers, silos, storage bins, hoppers, vaults, pits, shafts, tunnels, equipment enclosures, ducts, pipelines and similar areas. This course is also suitable for supervisors and managers who are responsible for ensuring that workers in their organisation are properly trained and equipped to work safely in confined spaces.
On completion of the course, delegates will receive a standard certificate, valid for 1 year.
