C & G -6160-01 Working in Low Risk Confined Spaces
The Level 2 Award in Working in Low-Risk Confined Spaces Course equips candidates with the necessary skills and knowledge to work safely in classified low-risk confined spaces. Delegates will learn and understand the procedures and equipment they require to perform their daily tasks safely while keeping in line with industry standards and regulations.
A low risk confined space typically has unobstructed access and is made up of a simple configuration. Such spaces include stairwells, pub cellars, valve chambers and pumping stations, that pose no threat of flooding and have adequate natural or mechanical ventilation.
A reasonably physically demanding course, a high proportion of the learning and assessment is practical exercises, including confined space entry.
In this comprehensive course, delegates will extensively cover preparing to enter and work safely in a low-risk environment, entering and exiting confined spaces safely, using equipment and tools, following procedures, and dealing with emergencies.
More specifically, the practical and theoretical learnings delegates will learn equips them to;
Understand the relevant and current low-risk confined space legislation.
Recognise and classify a low-risk confined space.
Produce safe systems of work for entry into low-risk confined spaces.
Know how to correctly and safely use atmospheric monitoring equipment..
Recognise diseases and understand the necessary personal hygiene requirements associated with low-risk confined spaces.
Training and Assessment
Our course-specific trainers will take delegates through the process to finish with a practical observation and short answer question paper assessment, of which they must pass both to gain the qualification.
Once the delegate has successfully completed the C&G Level 2 Award in Low Risk Confined Space entry course and assessments, the results will be submitted to the awarding body and certificate will be issued to the delegate in due course.
