This City & Guilds Level 4 Award in Plan, Manage and Review Legislative and Safety Compliance for Work in Confined Spaces (6160-06) is about managing legislative and safety compliance for work in confined spaces. It involves planning, organising and managing work safely in confined spaces including legislative roles and responsibilities, health and safety considerations and equipment requirements.

This course covers:

  • applying relevant legislative and industry confined spaces requirements
  • developing risk assessments
  • determining suitable control measures
  • developing safe systems of work
  • establishing effective procedures for using permits to work
  • developing effective emergency arrangements
  • implementing and maintaining effective arrangements for document storage, review and audit.

At the end of the course, candidates will be able to:
