Confined Space Awareness

Managing people who enter confined spaces to carry out their work, requires specialist knowledge to enable a meaningful risk assessment to be completed and the correct equipment provided. This theory course is to ensure people understand the health and safety essentials associated with working in confined spaces. There is no practical element to this training.
