This course aims to educate delegates through content that reflects the national occupational standard (NOS) for high-risk related confined space environments – NC4 classification.
A physically demanding course, the majority of the learning and assessment is practical, including confined space entry and simulation in one of our custom-built high-risk confined spaces tailored to your needs – tunnels, shafts, gas works, for example. The course practical elements are supplemented with classroom-based tutorials to prepare delegates for a final examination at the end of day three.
Our occupation-specific trainers will coach delegates over the three-day course, finishing with a practical observation and short answer question paper assessment. They must pass both elements of the course to qualify.
In this comprehensive course, delegates will cover preparations to enter and work safely in a high-risk environment, enter and exit confined spaces safely, use equipment and tools, follow procedures, and deal with emergencies and major incidents effectively.
The practical and theoretical learnings will equip delegates to;
- Understand the relevant and current confined space legislation
- Recognise and classify a high-risk confined space
- Produce safe systems of work for entry into high-risk confined spaces, including a point of works risk assessment.
- Recognise diseases and understand the necessary personal hygiene requirements associated with high-risk confined spaces
- Know how to correctly and safely use atmospheric monitoring equipment
- Perform an entry using self-contained breathing apparatus
At the end of this course, successful delegates will know with confidence;
- The dangers associated with high-risk confined space working
- How to classify a high-risk confined space
- How to risk assess a high-risk confined space
- The use of self-contained breathing apparatus
- Correct and safe use of atmospheric monitoring equipment
- How to use personal protective equipment, i.e. harnesses and access equipment
- The types and safe use of escape breathing apparatus and self-contained breathing apparatus
- The necessary manning levels – delegates must understand and be able to implement proper working procedures considering their risk assessment
- Why there is a need for periodic examinations of equipment
- The emergency procedures when working in a high-risk confined space
