Confined Spaces Training Course
This online Confined Spaces Training course provides the knowledge needed to safely work within confined spaces whilst ensuring that control measures are in place and workers are aware of the dangers and how to identify risks.
Around 15 people per year are killed in confined spaces within the UK alone. Some of these fatalities can be due to being trapped, injured or poor ventilation. Key legislation to help protect worker’s health and safety is the Confined Spaces Regulations 1997. This regulation outlines what duties should be upheld by employers and self-employed persons, what emergency procedures should be in place, as well as what is defined specifically as a ‘confined space’.
Confined spaces are a regular part of many job roles, but due to improper training and knowledge, they can cause serious injuries or, in some severe cases, death. Due to this, it is essential that all employees who undertake work within confined spaces are trained adequately and aware of the dangers surrounding this line of work.
