Confined Space Training Courses
Any place which is substantially enclosed can pose a risk, whether through exposure to hazardous substances or because of the conditions within that space, and the risk of entrapment. These spaces also often pose a risk of asphyxiation, drowning or loss of consciousness through lack of oxygen. Frequently, it is not only those working in confined spaces who are in danger, but also those who are tasked with rescuing them when things go wrong.
Because of these risks, this type of work kills around 15 people every year in the UK, and injures many more. Wherever possible, workers should avoid carrying out work in confined spaces, but when this is impossible, the right training can help minimise the risk.
Under the Confined Spaces Regulations 1997, it is compulsory for individuals to have the appropriate safety training before entering or preparing to enter a confined space. Our courses meet this need.
