The course will enable delegates to:

  • Identify, assess, plan and permit entry into a confined space
  • Use relevant assessments, systems, and permits to control the entry into the confined space
  • Know how and what your team need to enter, control/supervise entry, and rescue from the risk
  • Know what is needed and assist with guidance in an emergency
  • Know how to terminate confined space entry operations and secure the space.

Please note: This course WILL NOT qualify you to personally to enter or supervise a confined space – but it will help you keep the entrants safe.

So what does this mean?

This 1 day course will give an awareness in the morning, delving deeper for managers in the afternoon.

Legislation and how to plan and mange the space in an easily understandable way, where questions can be asked, and advice freely given to help your team determine if the space is a “confined” under the regulations.

It will also help you ask the right questions. Opportunities to discuss scenarios, explore problems, develop solutions and the equipment that needs to be in place.

The team responsible for safety need to know more so…

– we can assist the designers and team managers to create more informed and better solutions to the construction problems of the new extension

– we can create more appropriate risk assessed methods of working

– we’re confident in taking clearer action on the ground due to the greater knowledge we’ve gained.

Whether or not it is a confined space, a suitable risk assessment and some control measures can be a good idea anyway!

Confined Space Manager


As part of the management team – we may not be going into the spaces to work, but we need to know all about the confined space and how to look after our teams whilst they are in there.

Controlling the space, ensuring all the method statements, risk assessments and safe systems of work are checked and adhered to by the teams on the ground – planning and making sure the team are safe – that’s my job

Confined Space Manager


As a production or operations manager, myself and my team need to know how to classify what is and what isn’t a confined space?

What control measures can I put in place to keep the teams safe?

What are the questions I need to be asking on my risk assessments and what is best practice?

How do I know that what the team are doing is safe or that the equipment they are using is correct?

Confined Space Manager


As the safety manager – it falls to me and my team to keep everyone safe.

With so many things to know and keep an eye on – it can be feel overwhelming.

I need to know what to look for, the key points and how I can help the team.
