Are you looking for a confined space training provider in the southwest? Browse our suite of Confined Space training here. Not sure which course you need? Read on for more guidance for those working in the water industry.


City & Guilds Courses

SA Safety is an accredited City & Guilds training provider based in Devon, UK, offering confined space courses applicable to all utility, industrial and manufacturing sectors, including the water industry.

If you want to book a City & Guilds course, please know that the course numbers for confined space qualifications have changed.  Previous water-industry-specific qualifications have been amalgamated with other industry sectors to create universal confined space qualifications. C&G qualifications now available have also been extended to cover identified job roles.

Safer working in confined spaces

Do you work in the water industry? The current Occasional Guidance Note on Confined Spaces from the water Industry body Water UK  is the Occasional Guidance Note on the Classification & Management of Confined Space Entries, issued in 2019, with fresh guidance on safer working in confined spaces. The aim is to continue to improve safety standards, not only within its own industry, but in the UK as a whole.

This new guidance will help you identify confined spaces, assess risk, and go on to develop safe and suitable systems of work. However the advice is not exhaustive, and cannot predict all possible scenarios. Your organisation will still need your own specific risk assessments, so if this guidance affects you, we can help.

Specialist consultancy, management and training

We are now an approved City & Guilds training centre, offering a full suite of 6160 C&G confined space courses at our specialist training unit: Unit 21, Teignbridge Business Centre in Newton Abbot.

At SA Safety we are specialists in confined space consultancy, management and training, passionate about creating a safer working environment for our customers.
