NEW! Confined Space Entry & Rescue : 2 Day

2 Day Confined Space Entry & Rescue


Working in confined spaces exposes employees to many potential hazards and risks, which, if not controlled, can have fatal consequences. For that reason, only competent personnel should carry out work in confined spaces. Personnel must have the knowledge to suitably control and mitigate the hazards presented to them; have a sound understanding of the various roles undertaken in confined space work; and the knowledge and skills to implement emergency procedures should the need arise. The correct and safe use of breathing apparatus is taught during this course.
