Confined Space Awareness Course Overview

A Confined Space Awareness Course will provide learners with the critical knowledge to identify any confined space. In addition, learners will finish with a clear understanding of regulations, such as Heath and Safety at Work Act 1974 and Confined Spaces Regulations 1997. As a result, learners can manage their duties successfully with a well rounded knowledge base.

The course content explores any specialist equipment that may be used for confined space entry, such as breathing air escape sets. Additionally, our Confined Space Awareness Course includes additional top person duties and how to supervise emergency procedures.

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. With our confined space training online, we guaranteed you will receive an accomplished level of skills to confidently tackle your daily role.
