Confined Spaces

Safety E-Learning Course

Course Objectives

  • Demonstrate what type of areas or situations can be classed as working in ‘Confined Spaces’
  • Illustrate the common risks associated with Confined Spaces work
  • Advise trainees on simple measures to mitigate Health and Safety risks
  • Teach how to identify hazards within Confined Spaces, such as dangerous residues and extreme temperatures
  • Show how to approach work in a Confined Space in the correct manner, and the necessary procedures that should be observed

Information

Confined Spaces can be found throughout a wide range of workplaces. It could be an drain, a storage silo, or even an attic – all of these are Confined Spaces.

If you or any of your employees have to enter an area that could potentially be classed as a ‘Confined Space’, it is important that you recognise its status as a hazardous area, and approach it in keeping with Health and Safety regulations.

Who is the Confined Spaces Course For?

A number of work roles involve Confined Spaces and the associated risks. If employees work in areas such as storage tanks, sewers or similar areas, all need to be aware of safe working procedures. Similarly, even if an employee is not directly involved with entering areas classifiable as Confined Spaces, they should be sufficiently trained as they may need to assist a colleague in an emergency situation. According to the HSE, a number of people are killed or injured in these situations each year, and some of the casualties are those trying to rescue a worker without the necessary training.
