Confined Space

For those required to enter confined spaces, we provide courses that can cover Escape BA, Full BA and Oxygen Resuscitation. For managers and supervisors we provide a 1 day Confined Spaces Awareness and Risk Assessment programme. Our courses are recognised by most major organisations and include practical classroom based exercises. We can provide all of the specialised equipment required for the courses.  We can provide on-site courses for groups.

CONFINED SPACES - SAFE ENTRY & ESCAPE BREATHING APPARATUS

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This course is predominantly intended for practical users who need to enter spaces which are substantially enclosed and where there is a potentially hazardous working environment. It would also benefit Managers, Supervisors, Engineers etc (who may have need to control work in these locations) as an addition to the Confined Spaces Risk Assessors Course. All delegates should be physically fit. If the facilities are suitable an entry or simulated entry exercise may be conducted.

 

OBJECTIVES

This course is designed to ensure that delegates who need to enter such workplaces understand the requirements of the law, the need for risk assessments and safe systems of work and how to apply these practically. This includes competent use of the appropriate equipment, to enable entry to be made safely.
