Work in Confined Spaces Course

Conducted by our experienced confined space technicians, this course is designed to train participants to safely carry out work in confined spaces by providing an understanding of the legal requirements, as well as practical risk control measures, safe systems of work and equipment that can be applied to any confined spaces situation, to ensure work is carried out safely. This course provides the competency requirements to undertake safe working practices when operating in confined spaces. Any person who is required to enter or work in confined spaces should attend this course.

Supervisors and managers of confined space work or who are required to issue permits and conduct atmospheric testing within confined spaces should attend our 2-day Working in Confined Spaces Supervisor course to ensure they comply with legislation by establishing permit conditions that effectively identify and control the risks within the confined space.
