CONFINED SPACE TRAINING

Confined Space Training Courses

We provide training courses and competence assessment to the highest possible standard in low risk, medium risk, high risk, rescue from, supervisory and management of confined space. We have state of the art facilities in our sites located throughout the UK which allow us to train and assess competence of course attendees in conditions which replicate ‘real-life’ situations. (We also have mobile training and assessment rigs we can locate at your premises).

All our confined space training courses include the option of City & Guilds certification. We provide a range of training and competence assessment course options within this field, including re-assessment training courses and rescue and recovery and managing work in confined spaces training courses.

What is confined space training and who needs to complete it?

Confined space training courses are for those who work in a confined spaces like silos, vats, sewers, pipes, access shafts to name a few.

A confined space is any space which is of an enclosed nature. For example working within a manhole is considered working within a confined space. Most confined spaces have limited or single access and they often also have minimal ventilation or access to oxygen.

Confined spaces can be above or below group and are found in almost any workplace. A confined space does not have to be small – some confined spaces are large, for example large silo can be considered a confined space.

Why is working in a confined space dangerous?

Confined spaces need to be assessed on a case-by-case basis to identify specific hazards, but anyone who works within a confined space knows that these hazards mean there is potential for very serious consequences.

On average 15 people are killed every year in the UK whilst working in confined spaces.

Common hazards include:

·         Rescue can be difficult, due to lack of entrances or the location of a confined space

·         Natural ventilation is often not sufficient to maintain air quality

·         The entrance or exit to a confined space may not allow escape if there should be a flood or collapse

·         Outside conditions may affect the conditions within a confined space

·         Hazardous materials or gasses may be within the confined space

·         There may be an increased risk of flooding or fire within certain confined spaces
