Who Should Take This Course?
This course is suitable for anyone whose work requires them to enter a confined space, including employees, managers, supervisors and rescuers. The course is designed as an introduction to working safely in confined spaces and so no pre-requisite training is needed.
A confined space is any area which is substantially enclosed and where there are risks to health and safety from hazardous substances or hazardous conditions. If you, or your employees, are required to work under such conditions then regular training is recommended.
On successful completion of the course you will be sent a quality assured certificate through the post the next working
day. This can be used to provide evidence for compliance and audit.
All of our courses are accredited by the CPD Certification Service as conforming
to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines.
This course is also approved by RoSPA, the Royal Society for the Prevention of
Accidents, as providing quality and content-approved training.
