This training course is designed for any personnel who are likely to be working in a confined space. Confined space refers to any place, including any vessel, tank, container, pit, bund, chamber, cellar or any other similar space which by virtue of its enclosed nature, creates conditions that give rise to a likelihood of an accident, harm or injury.
Participants of this course will reach a high level of competence when working in confined spaces. This will allow them to access hazards associated with confined spaces, plan rescue procedures and ensure that safe work practices are put in place.
Any person who needs to develop the essential underpinning skills and knowledge required to plan, enter, work and exit confined spaces including via a vertical shaft and where escape breathing apparatus is a part of the planned means of self rescue.
