When working in confined spaces (CS) workers can become trapped or overcome by fumes, vapours, poisonous or explosive gases.

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.

Employers must identify if a work activity, hazards and area of work is, or should be classed as a CS. Anyone working in a CS must be properly trained.

Course includes:

  • H&S Laws & Regulations relating to CS
  • Responsibilities of employers and employees
  • Definitions and types of CS
  • Hazards and risks – necessary precautions required
  • Understanding safe systems of work with particular reference to ‘permits to work’ where appropriate

  • To work safely in medium risk CS
  • Emergency procedures
  • Prepare and use escape breathing apparatus in accordance with manufacturers instructions
  • Practical session demonstrating safe exit procedures where delegates use breathing apparatus and 20mtr rescue winch.
  • Test paper/ questions/ handouts and review


There is a practical element to the course – delegates require their PPE which must include a hard hat, hi-viz top, hard boots. Breathing apparatus is supplied.

Attended Confined Space Medium Risk course in September 2020, 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.
