Low Risk Confined Space Entry Training

Low Risk Confined Space Entry Training

Description

This confined space training course is about entering and working in a low risk environment with adequate natural or mechanical ventilation. The access appears simple and unobstructed and there is no likely risk of flooding (for example; meter pits, valve chambers, stairwells). If the operative is only checking areas no deeper than 1200mm with easy access openings using a gas detector where standing up in an alarm situation would render them safe, they will need to take the low risk confined space entry training course. This only allows for working in NC1 confined spaces.

NC1 low risk confined spaces are defined as shallow entry with adequate natural or mechanical ventilation, where access is simple and unobstructed and there is no likely risk of flooding. Good examples of this are meter pits, valve chambers, booster pumping stations and PRV chambers.
