Managing Work in Confined Spaces

With City & Guilds Level 5 accreditation option

Managing Work in Confined Spaces (with City & Guilds Level 5 accreditation option)

To impart knowledge and skills to those persons who may be involved in planning, organizing and managing work safely in confined spaces.

This training programme is designed for those responsible for organizing and planning work activities within a confined space. The manager may or may not supervise the actual job. (Emphasis on hazards / controls, use of documents associated with confined space entries, use of environmental monitoring equipment, access equipment, escape breathing apparatus.)

We offer the opportunity for delegates to book an additional third day where they undertake a written test and a peer review of their case study to submit for assessment and verification to achieve a Level 5 City & Guilds certificate.

NB: This higher level management qualification may require additional working (above the course contact hours) on the case study prior to submission.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this course delegates will be able to

  • Apply the relevant legislative and industry requirements for managing work in confined spaces
  • Be aware of risk assessment requirements relevant to confined spaces work activities
  • Identify suitable control measures for work activities to be undertaken in confined spaces
  • Be aware of safe working methods for confined spaces
  • Be aware of effective procedures for using permits to work
  • Be aware of effective emergency arrangements
  • Be aware of and maintain effective arrangements for document storage, review and audit

Additional Course Details

For delegates who are completing the two-day course, the trainer will make an informed decision on the successful completion of the case study and award an MRS Training & Rescue certificate.

If completing the third additional day– which is a City and Guilds Level 5 certification – an extra fee is chargeable.

For City & Guilds certification delegates need to:

  • Pass a written test.
  • Complete a case study which is assessed and independently quality assured (which may need to be completed in their own time after day 2 and submitted on or prior to day 3)
  • Complete a peer assessment on a safe system of work

The completed case study will be assessed and if it reaches the required standard, the candidate will receive a City & Guilds certificate.

However, if it does not, it will be returned to the delegate for further work and the delegate will be given one further opportunity against an agreed timescale to resubmit the case study. If it then meets the standard required, a City & Guilds certificate will be issued.
