Confined Space Entrant/Attendant & Rescue
A staggering number of workers are killed or seriously injured every year in confined spaces due to lack of knowledge of the environments they are working in and the equipment they are working with. This course is intended for delegates who require the knowledge to allow them to apply safe working practices, reducing unnecessary risk when entering or working in confined space environments.
We simulate a real life enclosure where the possibility of a dangerous environment could exist and features within the structure include top and side entry access hatches, chambers, tunnels, ladders, smoke machines and audio alarms. There are also a number of infra-red cameras inside the structure for delegate monitoring and recordings for feedback. This specifically designed structure allows delegates to receive the most thorough experience of confined space training, either alone or in teams, preparing them for a real life situation.
