The aim of this Confined Space entry course is to prepare candidates to enter, working and exit low and medium risk confined spaces safely. It involves training on Access Equipment (Tripod & Winch system, Rescue Retrievers), Confined Space Rescue harnesses, Atmospheric monitoring equipment, Ventilation, use of 15 minutes Emergency Escape Breathing Apparatus, Confined Space communications, and the duties of the Top Person (Safety Attendant).
The course includes underpinning knowledge of Confined Space Legislation, identification of confined spaces and their associated hazards, awareness of confined space risk assessments, principles of Safe Systems of Work for Confined Space Operations and the legal requirement and importance of a Confined Space Rescue Plan.
Practical exercises are completed using our purpose built confined space training area, within which delegates will descend/ascend and traverse a designated confined space, wearing an approved safety harness and breathing apparatus with face mask/hood. Delegates will be expected to crawl through area's of variably sized and shaped tunnels under various simulated emergency conditions.
