Working in Confined Spaces

Approved by IIRSM

A confined space is both enclosed or largely enclosed and which also has a reasonably foreseeable risk to workers of fire, explosion, loss of consciousness, asphyxiation or drowning.

It may be small and restrictive for the worker, or it could be far larger such as a grain storage silo with hundreds of cubic metres of capacity.

This course will cover the legislation associated with working in confined spaces. What constitutes a confined space, what are the potential hazards, and what are safe operating procedures, emergency procedures, and rescue procedures?

At the end of this course, you’ll be able to demonstrate your understanding of the control measures to be followed when working in or near confined spaces as detailed in a safe working procedure.

Important note: This is an awareness course designed for people who need to know the hazards and risks of confined space working but are not required to enter a confined space. If you are required to perform any work activity in, or in the proximity of, a confined space, then you will also need to have an ‘approved’ standard of practical training at the ‘appropriate’ level.
