Working in Confined Spaces Course Contents

Every year, UK workers are injured or killed working in confined spaces, as this kind of work can be extremely dangerous if the correct procedures are not followed.

This programme explains what confined spaces are, why they can be dangerous, what the law says must be done in a confined space situation at work, and how the risks can be minimised. It covers the different kinds of confined spaces, as well as how to perform proper risk assessments and understand correct emergency procedures.

Confined Spaces training is particularly important for those working in Construction, Installation/Maintenance and Manufacturing (as well as anyone carrying out repair work or working with potentially dangerous substances in a poorly ventilated areas.)

for Entry

Before entering a confined space there are important checks that must be done. The atmosphere must be tested – the oxygen levels must be within safe limits and the same goes for flammability and toxicity levels too.

We look at purging and ventilation, isolation, cleaning and lighting.

Finally it looks at the equipment that might be needed – Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE).
