Confined Space Training Awareness Course

The course is mainly class room based with discussions showing examples of the interpretations of confined spaces to candidates who attend.

Candidates will be made aware that Confined spaces can be deadly. The regulations were introduced in order to control industry and the self-employed.

You require training if you are involved with entering, controlling or supervising people involved with confined space work you must have received training. Failure to comply with the 1997 Confined Space regulations can result in prosecution.

People are killed or seriously injured in confined spaces every year in the United Kingdom.  This includes a large number of people trying to rescue others without sufficient equipment or training.

A hierarchy of control must be considered prior to commencing work.

The Confined Space Regulations state the following:

  • Avoid entry to confined spaces eg. By doing work from outside
  • If entry to a confined space is unavoidable, follow a safe system of work
  • Put in place adequate emergency arrangements before the work starts
