CONFINED SPACE

Coming Early 2021 

ECITB Medium Risk

ECITB Medium Risk Confined Space training concentrates on two different methods of entry to confined spaces and is suitable for those nominated to make low risk shallow entries with adequate ventilation, natural or mechanical, where access is simple and unobstructed and there is no likely risk of flooding.

Method 1: Entering a confined space, no deeper than three metres 

Method 2: Entering a confined space, deeper than 3 metres but with an unobstructed vertical lift, with a straight ladder into a dark chamber.

 

The course covers both methods of entry and includes staying on a lifeline to complete the task, where if they were to collapse the retrieval equipment would be operated and removal from the lifeline would be possible with a rescue team deployed.

Upon completion, delegates will be able to demonstrate two methods of entry into a medium risk confined space.

 

The course covers:

Legislation

Specified risks

Safe systems of work, including risk assessments

Dangerous atmospheres

Gas detection equipment

Safety equipment

Harness inspection and fitting

Vertical access

Practical exercises

Vacating a hazardous environment

The safe use of escape equipment

Written assessment

 

CERTIFICATE: ECITB approved certificate with refresher training recommended every 3 years

PREREQUISITES: The course involves physical and mental exercises. A good standard of medical fitness is required. 

DURATION: 2 Days

PRICE: £400+VAT

ECITB High Risk

ECITB High Risk Confined Space training ensures the risk remains as low as possible when gaining entry to a confined space that is classified as high risk (NC4) and is suitable for personnel nominated to work in confined spaces where work has been classified as high risk (spaces which are primarily enclosed and are a potential hazardous working environment where self-contained breathing apparatus is to be worn).

 

The course covers a broad range of structures including shafts, tunnels and voids using a man-riding winch and retrieval device connected to a davit or tripod to gain entry.

These spaces are primarily enclosed and are a potential hazardous working environment where self-contained breathing apparatus is required to be worn.

The training is general to working within a confined space and working at height but focuses very much on industrial urban environments.

The course includes:

-Legislation

-Knowledge of confined space specified risks

-Safe systems of work, including risk assessments and work permits

-Top-man pre-entry procedures

-Safety equipment, eg breathing apparatus sets, harnesses, gas monitors, tripod or davit, retrieval device and man-riding winch

-Escaping from a realistic controlled environment upon activation of gas monitor

-Decontamination upon exiting the confined space

 

Upon completion, delegates will be able to:

  • Conduct a risk assessment prior to entering a confined space

  • Identify all specified risks

  • Ensure suitable and sufficient measures have been implemented

  • Gain entry to a high risk confined space using full duration breathing apparatus

  • Demonstrate safe donning and starting procedures

  • Demonstrate safe doffing procedures upon exiting a hazardous area

 

CERTIFICATE:ECITB approved certificate  with refresher training recommended every 3 years

PREREQUISITES: The course involves physical and mental exercises. A good standard of medical fitness is required.
