Management of Confined Space
Confined spaces are one of the most dangerous working environments that we ask workers to work in. Unless we provide our workers with a safe way to enter & work, the outcome could be potentially fatal. This course is designed for Managers, team leaders, supervisors, safety advisors and anyone else with a responsibility for managing the safe entry of workers into confined spaces.
To provide delegates with the knowledge and skills to understand their duties & responsibilities under the Confined Space Regulations 1997. This should allow the delegates to clearly identify the hazards and risks that confined spaces pose and to develop safe systems of work to manage safely the work in confined spaces.
