This course is suitable for all staff who are liable to be exposed to working in a confined space/vessel. After attending our one-day training course attendees will benefit from familiarisation with confined spaces and well as an understanding of the dangers, safety and assessment of risk and how to keep themselves and those around them safe.
The theoretical aspect of the course is delivered in the classroom, involving exercises to identify confined spaces, protect workers and deal with emergency situations.
Learners participating in the course can bring with them any materials used by their own employer and copies of risk assessments or permits to work so that they can see how their materials fit into the context of the awareness of confined spaces training.
After this one-day course attendee will:
• Have an understanding of legislation specific to confined spaces/vessels
• Be provided with information on safe systems of work and understand management responsibilities
• Be given an introduction to safety equipment and breathing apparatus
• Understand the atmospheric monitoring, deterioration, and properties of gases
• Have an understanding of access requirements, the role of standby personnel and emergency procedures
The session is followed by a multiple-choice assessment designed to test learners’ understanding of the course. Test results are usually disclosed within two working days after attending the training. A certificate will be issued after the successful completion of the training course.
