Entry Requirements

Those who work in Medium Risk confined spaces:


Medium risk confined spaces exist where there is a realistic expectation of encountering a specified risk or the possible introduction of a specified risk during the work activity.


It will also not be possible to have a person permanently attached to a safety line and is usually a team entry which moves away from the entry point (e.g. man entry sewers, utility service, subway tunnels, tanks, chambers, aqueducts and complex wet wells).

 

Delegates must be 18 years old to attend this course.

Additional Information

Delegates successfully completing the course will be awarded a City & Guilds Level 2 Qualification.

Investment has been made to develop a multi-use confined space practical training facility.

The facility is monitored by Infra-Red CCTV, allowing delegates to see activity within the internal confined spaces. Functionally can be changed according to customer requirements to replicate working environments (flooding, gas, etc.).

Confined Space Low Risk courses are delivered within City & Guilds approved HSS Training Centres at Derby, Middlewich and Staples Corner (London).
 
This can be organised at your premises as a dedicated course to include escape sets, however, as there is not an accredited practical facility on site, you will receive a Low Risk Confined Space Awareness Certificate only. Click here to request further information.
