Confined Space Entry
Low - Medium Risk

Cost Per Person: £175.00 + VAT
Duration: 1 Day

A course designed to provide the individual with the skills and confidence to operate in a Low – Medium Risk Confined Space.

A Low Risk Confined Space is defined as ‘shallow entry with adequate natural or mechanical ventilation, where access is simple and unobstructed and there is no likely risk of flooding.

A Medium Risk Confined Space exists where there are access issues and a realistic expectation of encountering a Specified Risk (fire or explosion, overheating, asphyxiation, drowning).

Those taking part in this training should consider and plan for the Work at Height implications of accessing and working within a Confined Space.  A Work at Height module can be added, a further 1/2 days training.

The course can be delivered on site, providing minimum theory and practical facilities are available, or at the HART training facility in Kent.
