Medium Risk Confined Space Entry and Supervision



Course code: CS2

Certificate valid for: 3 Years

Cost: From £275 + VAT per person

Location: Element Safety - Sheffield

Duration: 1 Day

Assessment method: Continuous

Training type: 50% Theory, 50% Practical

Description:

Medium risk confined space may be space such as:

  • horizontal entry into
    • a large space with complex access problems
    • a small space – working a significant distance from the entry point
  • vertical entry down a deep shaft or requiring work to be done out of sight of the top person – a rescue plan must be in place

It could have:

  • significant entry/exit issues
  • an expectation of a specified risk
  • limited ventilation

Tasks will be further from the entry point, potentially be more complex, and will require emergency escape breathing apparatus to get out in a hurry!

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 2 (medium risk) confined spaces.

  • Understand confined space risk assessments, safe systems (method statements) and permits
  • Have a sound understanding of environmental monitoring and ventilation
  • Be confident in the use of gas monitoring and detection equipment
  • Understand work restraint and fall arrest, including the use of a harness and lanyard
  • Understand the use of davits, tripods and winches for access and egress
  • Follow procedures to safely enter, work in and exit level 2 confined spaces
  • Use PPE and level 2 associated equipment correctly and safely
  • Be confident in the use of respiratory protection and escape breathing apparatus
  • Be able to undertake the role of the confined space supervisor (top person)
  • Understand procedures for and be confident dealing with emergencies

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 medium risk and how to set up and supervise the space.

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

Medium Risk Confined Space Entry and Supervision


A scaffolder needs to access all kinds of places, usually deep within some complex structures in order to build platforms to make it safe for others.

You are deep within a well, industrial boiler or other tricky enclosed structure.

Access and ventilation are limited.  Its manual work and body temperature could definitely be an issue.

Medium Risk Confined Space Entry and Supervision


As an asbestos operative you know the risks to your lungs. Your work is often hot, cramped, dusty and requires long periods of manual work in enclosed spaces.

Air quality may have declined, ventilation is definitely reduced, and body temperature will probably increase.

Medium Risk Confined Space Entry and Supervision


As a maintenance engineer or inspector you need to enter a tank to clean, non-destructive test, inspect, or repair some damage.

You need to unclip from the safety line to access the area.

The hatches are open, but they limited in number and the ventilation is poor.

Air quality, oxygen level and evacuation time could be a problem.

Gas monitoring is essential and emergency escape breathing apparatus is required just in case.
