Confined Space: Awareness

confined space training - mask

This is a one-day course suitable for people who may have to work in confined spaces, in particular those working in the water, utilities, industrial and construction sectors.

A confined space is defined as a space with limited entry and egress, unsuitable for human inhabitants, for example the interior of a storage tank, which is occasionally entered by maintenance workers but can be hazardous to humans .Hazards can include harmful dust or gases, asphyxiation, submersion in liquids or free-flowing granular solids (eg grain bins), electrocution, or entrapment. The course is designed for anyone who may have to enter a confined space in the course of their work.

The course is assessed by continuous practical assessment and a written multiple-choice test. it is ideal for 10-15 learners, but please talk to us about your own training requirements. Upon successful completion of the course, SA Safety Limited will issue a certificate of attendance. Students will need to re-qualify within three years.

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

Confined Space: Management

This Managing Confined Space course was designed and developed by us to cover the more in-depth training needs of people 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 is delivered on-site and ideally aimed at a group of 8-10 learners, however we will be happy to discuss your specific training requirements.

We follow the Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) (Confined Spaces) for hazardous materials and working practices and align these to your current policy and procedure.

The course will include early identification of your on-site confined spaces, and the preparation of site-specific risk assessments and method statements (RAMS), and the development of an emergency plan resulting in a Safe System of Work.

The course includes the following learning outcomes:

going into a confined space
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

Confined Space: First Aid, Casualty Handling and Rescue

course - confined space rescue

Working in confined spaces exposes your employees to potential hazards which can threaten injury and even death. Specialist training is required to equip people working in such environments with the necessary skills and competencies to assess risks, control hazards and work in a safe manner.

This 2-day course, for learner groups of between 8-10 people, is suitable for anyone who is part of a dedicated rescue team that needs to be able to cope with medical 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 for confined space and working at height.

This course aims to ensure learners are aware of the potential risks involved in working in confined spaces against the National Occupational Standard (NOS). The training will enable them to undertake a risk assessment to identify hazards as low, medium or high risk, and to be competent in the use of the correct equipment and procedures appropriate to the confined space environment. 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
