Low Risk Confined Space course content

What does the Low Risk Confined Space course cover?

The course is delivered by an instructor who has experience with emergency operations and hazardous environments.

In most cases, you will not be required to wear the breathing apparatus for this course. This is because the risk of a hazardous atmosphere is low or that you will quickly get out of the space.

The tutor will cover the following topics throughout the course.

  • Working in low risk confined spaces
  • Preparing to work safely in a low risk confined space
  • Safely using tools and equipment
  • Following work procedures safely
  • Safely entering and exiting confined spaces
  • Dealing with an emergency
  • Behaving appropriately in a low risk confined space
  • Applying your knowledge to your work

Course Objectives

By the end of the training course, you will know how to safely work in low risk confined spaces, including entering safely and dealing with an emergency.

What is Required to Pass the Low Risk Confined Space Course?

The tutor will assess your competence and understanding throughout the course. You must pass a written exam and a practical observation of entering a low risk confined space.

How long is the Low Risk Confined Space course?

The course is delivered over one day.

Why should I take this course?

Individuals who work in confined spaces with suitable or mechanical ventilation and low risk environments should attend this course.

Working in any confined space is dangerous despite the level of risk. This course will help you to look after the safety of yourself and others when entering the likes of a stairwell, valve chambers and meter pits, to name a few examples.

It is also a legal requirement for employers to make sure that their workers are properly trained. With the correct knowledge and skill, you’ll recognise hazards and understand your safety equipment, which will help you avoid dangerous situations and control them.

Low Risk Confined Space entry requirements

You must be able to understand and speak English to attend this course.

When working with confined spaces, communication is imperative. Without understanding and communicating with your team, you are putting yourself and others at a safety risk.

You must also have the required level of physical fitness to complete the course.
