Why do I need to take a Confined Space Course?

Every year confined spaces kill or injure those working and those who attempt to rescue them. Unfortunately, this is common for workers without the appropriate training and experience with safety equipment.

With this in mind, it is important to receive the appropriate training to complete your duties. Because of this, other confined space online courses that take less time at a lowest price, could leave you at risk of not receiving the essential training you need. At Hydro-X, we offer quality training, with enriched knowledge and valuable skills, which you can implement into real life situations.

In each of our confined spaces courses, we teach well-rounded skills. These include: breathing apparatus, team rescue, risk assessments, confined space management, regulations and legislations. Furthermore, our courses are tailored with the appropriate training for your specific role.

What is a Confined Space?

It is actually impossible to create a set list of all the different types. Nevertheless, there are specific elements that help workers identify a confined space. Fortunately, our City and Guilds Confined Spaces Training can assist you with this to assure risks and accidents are kept under control.

Some confined spaces may include:

  • Chamber
  • Tank
  • Vat
  • Silo
  • Pit
  • Trench
  • Pipe
  • Sewer
  • Flue

What defines a confined space?

Under the Confined Spaces Regulations 1997,  a ‘confined space’ must have both of the following defining features:

  1. It must be a space which is substantially (though not always entirely) enclosed
  2. One or more of the specified risks must be present or reasonably foreseeable

To define a confined space, there has to be a risk of injury or even death. Therefore, the individual would have to be exposed to hazardous substances and dangerous conditions, such as lack of oxygen levels.

Confined Space Regulations

During the Confined Space Course, the delegates gain knowledge of the relevant regulations and working practices. As this prepares them for working for real life situations, these regulations must be followed during the practical activity in the confined spaces training container.

The regulations and laws that the training course explores are the Heath and Safety at Work Act 1974 and Confined Spaces Regulations 1997

Confined Spaces Regulations 1997 includes:

  1. Citation, commencement and interpretation

  2. Disapplication of Regulations

  3. Duties

  4. Work in confined spaces

  5. Emergency arrangements

  6. Exemption certificates

  7. Defence in proceedings

  8. Extension outside Great Britain

  9. Repeal and revocations
