Confined Space Training – Awareness for Managers

Confined Space Training - Awareness for Managers


This course is for persons who will not be required to enter the confined space but who are in a management position and responsible for committing others to supervise or work inside the confined space. This course is also aimed at a person responsible for the development of risk assessments, safe systems of work and rescue plans rather than a “local” supervisor.

Delegates are required to appraise site conditions and generate a document pack which can be used by a live entry team at some future point, all document packs are assessed and certification is only issued to successful participants.


1-2 days depending on client's requirement
