Do You Need To Attend This Course?
In order to take part in this training course, you must be over 18 years of age. The course is specifically designed for those who work, or are looking to work in low risk confined spaces. These are classified by spaces where there is a shallow entry/exit, there is adequate ventilation (either mechanical or natural), and where access is unobstructed and simple, meaning that there is no risk of flooding.
Examples of low risk confined spaces are meter pits, valve chambers, booster pumping stations, and PRV chambers.
The contents of this course are primarily associated with lone working where the application of appropriate procedures is required.
It is also important to note that the safe working load of equipment used during this practical session is 136kg. If you wish to attend this course but are above this weight, it is important to contact us beforehand, to check if additional provisions need to be made.
Upon successful completion of this training course, you will be awarded a City & Guilds Level 2 Qualification.
