Working in Confined Spaces

IIRSM Approved

Course Description
At the end of this course you’ll be able to demonstrate your understanding of the control measures to be followed when working near to confined spaces as detailed in a safe working procedure. This course will cover the legislation associates with working in confined spaces. What counts as a confined space, the potential hazards, safe operating procedures, emergency procedures and rescue.

Target Audience
This is an awareness course only and is designed for people who need to be aware of the hazards and risks of confined space working but are not required to enter a confined space. If you are required to perform any work activity in, or in the proximity of, a confined space then you will also need to have an ‘approved’ standard of practical training at the ‘appropriate’ level, you can get in touch with us to arrange this.

This course raises awareness of the dangers associated with confined Spaces and the practical steps that can be taken to minimise and control the risks that confined spaces present. Online training is flexible, efficient and cost-effective, so candidates can progress through the modules at their own pace, in their own time, making it easy to fit the training around their work and personal life.

Further Progression
Our Workplace Health and Safety course is a great induction course in relation to health and safety as it covers a wide range of topics in more detail and has been designed to complement this course. Anyone who is required to lift, lower, push, pull or carry as part of normal work our Manual Handling course would cover this more thoroughly and anyone who is required to work above the ground, our Working at Height course would be a useful follow up.
