Everything you need to know

Confined
Space

Confined Space Awareness

A confined space is a space with limited entry and egress, and unsuitable for human inhabitants. An example is the interior of a storage tank, occasionally entered by maintenance workers but not intended for human occupancy. Hazards in a confined space often include harmful dust or gases, asphyxiation, submersion in liquids or free-flowing granular solids (for example, grain bins), electrocution, or entrapment. This one-day course is suitable for all persons that are engaged in confined space activities, in particular those working in the water, utilities, industrial and construction sectors. The training, which is always updated to be fully compliant with current legislation, covers the following areas:

Awareness of the legislation applying to Confined Spaces working
Principles of Confined Space Risks/Hazards
Principles of Confined Space Identification and Classification
Knowledge of problems relating to gases and gas detection
Permits to work and safe systems of work
Health & Safety responsibilities of a manager/employer
The importance of reporting accidents, ill health and other incidents
Practical exercises in working in confined space, search and rescue
Setup and practical use of access equipment and escape sets

This is a one-day course, during which students will be assessed by continuous practical assessment and a written multi-choice test.

Upon successful completion of the course, SA Safety Limited will issue a certificate of attendance. Students will need to re-qualify within three years.

Learner numbers are ideally 10-15.

Managing Confined Space

SA Safety have designed and developed a managing confined space course suitable for persons responsible for setting contractors and staff to work in confined space or those responsible for issuing permits and understanding the safe system of work. The course includes the following outcomes:

Apply the relevant legislative and industry requirements for managing work in confined spaces
Be aware of risk assessment requirements relevant to confined spaces work activities
Identify suitable control measures for work activities to be undertaken in confined spaces
Be aware of safe working methods for confined spaces
Be aware of effective procedures for using permits to work
Be aware of effective emergency arrangements
Be aware of and maintain effective arrangements for document storage, review and audit
Demonstrate the ability to undertake suitable and sufficient RAMS, creating SSoW within the workplace setting

We utilise the confined space-approved code of practice (ACOP) and align these to your current policy and procedure. The course will include early identification of particular on-site confined spaces where we can undertake a full audit, creating RAMS, emergency plan resulting in a Safe System of Work.

The course is delivered on-site.

Learner numbers are ideally 8-10.

Confined Space First Aid, Casualty Handling and Rescue

Working in confined spaces exposes your employees to potential hazards, some of which threaten injury and, in some instances, death. Specialist training and assessment is required to equip those working in such environments with the necessary skills and competencies to assess risks, control hazards and work in a safe manner. The two defining features of a confined space, according to regulation, are:

  • The space is enclosed
  • The presence of a specified risk

Upon identifying a confined space, a person(s) must undertake a risk assessment to determine the nature of specified hazards that could be encountered and the probability of encountering them. This will then lead to the classification of the confined space at low, medium or high-risk and trigger the use of equipment and procedures appropriate to the confined space environment.

This course aims to ensure learners are aware of the potential risks involved in working in confined spaces against the National Occupational Standard (NOS). It is suitable for anyone who is part of a dedicated rescue team that needs to be able to cope with emergencies in confined space. The course combines the range of first aid and rescue skills needed by emergency teams and provides both theory and practical content to ensure competence in rescue techniques from confined space and working at height. Learning outcomes include:

Provide personnel with the necessary knowledge and information to extricate, treat and transport a casualty safely, using standard equipment
Prepare to work safely in confined spaces under emergency conditions
Enter and exit confined spaces safely
Prepare and use RPE in accordance with manufacturers specifications (emergency escape breathing device, self-contained breathing apparatus)
Identify and explain the various confined space rescue equipment and the hazards associated with the various pieces of equipment and their limitations
Outline the various confined space rescue techniques that can be applied using all available confined space rescue equipment that would normally be available on-site
Demonstrate the use of rescue equipment safely in a simulated confined space in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions (e.g. gas monitors, tripod, winch, harness and stretcher)
Work in their team effectively using a ‘Dynamic Risk Assessment’ approach, maintaining a questioning attitude and using STAR throughout the scenario
Deal with emergencies
Demonstrate the application of life-saving techniques
The ability to stem the flow of blood and immobilisation of fractures
Demonstrate the treatment of a trauma resulting from shock caused either by injuries or event including electrical burns and low and high voltage electrical shock
Demonstrate casualty care, which includes lifting, handling and basic first aid requirements

This course is suitable for anyone who is part of a dedicated rescue team that needs to be able to cope with emergencies in confined space.

Course duration: 2 days.

Learner numbers are ideally 8-10.
