Phoenix Safety Confined Space Training Courses provide you with the practical knowledge and essential skills to carry out safe entry into a confined space and reasonably assess the risks associated with working in a confined space
The Confined Space Regulations 1997 place a statutory requirement on employers to protect employees who carry out work in confined spaces.
A confined space is described as any space of an enclosed nature where there is a risk of death or serious injury from hazardous substances or dangerous conditions (e.g. lack of oxygen).
Confined Space Training Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Bradford
The regulations require employers to carry out a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks for all work activities for the purpose of deciding what measures are necessary for safety. For work in confined spaces this means identifying the hazards present, assessing the risks and determining the precautions to take.
If the assessment identifies risks from working in a confined space then employers must:
- Avoid entry to confined spaces
- If entry to a confined space is unavoidable, follow a safe system of work
- Put in place adequate emergency arrangements before the work starts
On completion of the Confined Space Training Courses held in Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Bradford, a Phoenix safety certificate of attendance will be forwarded to successful delegates.
