Low Risk Confined Space Entry and Supervision



Course code: CS1

Certificate valid for: 3 Years

Location: Element Safety (Sheffield) or on your site

Duration: 0.75 Day

Assessment method: Continuous assessment

Training type: 70% Theory, 30% Practical

Description:

Low risk confined space may be space such as:

  • a horizontal entry
    • into a large space
    • a short distance into a small space
  • a vertical entry down a shallow shaft (but not to work away from the bottom of the ladder) – although a rescue plan must be in place.

It would have

  • manageable entry/exit
  • ‘limited’ expectation of a specified risk
  • adequate ventilation

If you need to enter a simple space for a short distance, with correct atmospheric monitoring – this course may be suitable.

Course Aims:

To train and assess individuals to safely supervise, enter, work in and exit spaces, which, due to their enclosed nature, their access/egress, and their potential hazard/s have been classified as level 1 (low risk) confined spaces.

So what does this mean?

This 1 day course will teach your team the legislation in an easily understandable way, what you are able to do in a low risk and how to set up and supervise the space.

Learn how to gas monitor the space and what to look for.

If undertaken at our centre, we will practically show you how to be safe, operate tripods/davits and set up your supervisor entry point.

Examples of Low Risk Confined Space Entry & Supervision training needs:

Low Risk Confined Space Entry and Supervision


An electrician, cabling or ducting engineer who needs to enter the roof void or an underground culvert.

There’s plenty of ventilation or fresh air, but you will monitor for potential gases or lack of oxygen.

It’s clean, access is easy and you don’t foresee any problems.

Low Risk Confined Space Entry and Supervision


A ground worker may only need low risk confined space entry to work in a trench laying a pipeline.

There is good easy access horizontally by means of stairs, good ventilation, a survey and risk assessment have been completed – it’s deemed there will probably be limited gases during the dig.

The tasks being undertaken may not change the space significantly, but we have been using an excavator, backfilling with limestone chippings and there has been rain in the last week too.

Low Risk Confined Space Entry and Supervision


A builder or drainage engineer – you need to work at the bottom of the inspection chamber or maybe feeding cctv into the pipe.

You need to enter vertically with a system like a tripod to lift you out of the space should an emergency arise.
