What is High Risk Confined Spaces training?
This City & Guilds accredited High Risk Confined Spaces training will give you the practical knowledge and skills to carry out safe entry into a confined space where there is a specified risk that can not be controlled or eliminated. High risk confined spaces have a higher degree of complex circumstances, including entry and exits, potential hazards and come with the greater likelihood of life-threatening situations occurring. Some confined spaces that are usually considered as high risk include underground tunnels and shafts with difficult access, limited ventilation and the presence of toxic or flammable gases in the atmosphere.
