Why do I need to take a Confined Space Course?

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.

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:
What defines a confined space?
Under the Confined Spaces Regulations 1997, a ‘confined space’ must have both of the following defining features:
- It must be a space which is substantially (though not always entirely) enclosed
- 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.
Confined Spaces Regulations 1997 includes:
Citation, commencement and interpretation
Disapplication of Regulations
Work in confined spaces
Defence in proceedings
Extension outside Great Britain
Repeal and revocations
