Medium risk confined spaces can be dangerous to work in without the required skills and knowledge. It is important to know how to prepare the work and use the tools before even entering the confined space; without this knowledge, you put yourself and others at risk.

You must also know how to deal with an emergency, as an incompetent worker in such as situation could lead to serious accidents.

The course will give you up to date knowledge of the legislation and standards surrounding confined spaces. This will help you to work legally as well as safely.

Medium Risk Confined Space entry requirements
