Avoidable accidents happen in a wide range of industries as CS are not just tanks, vessels or chambers – spaces do not have to be totally enclosed to be considered ‘confined’.

This course is about working in CS environments where there is a medium risk that a specified hazard may be present with also focusing on the time taken to evacuate increases risk to entrants. It will require the use of escape breathing apparatus.

Attended this course in Sept '20, the course was very impressive. The Covid-19 measures put in place were excellant each person was sat 2 metres apart with clear tape seperating each delegate, there was plenty of space to move around in, clear signage and the staff regularly sanitized the refreshment area & touch points. The Covid policy was easy to follow. Great training experience.
