Tragedies happen in a wide range of industries as confined spaces are not just tanks, vessels or chambers. They do not have to be totally enclosed.

This course is about working in confined space environemnts 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.
