It was an interesting day at Safecon HQ last week for confined space entry training. Our Clients needed training in how to enter a Confined Space safely as well as training in dealing with an emergency in a Confined Space. The day started off with Confined Space Awareness Training which outlined the dangers of confined spaces, the legislation around working in confined spaces and safe systems of work. Following this our clients got training in how to use all the equipment necessary to enter a Confined Space. This included breathing apparatus, access equipment and gas monitors.
Then the training was brought outside for the practical aspect. As seen below, the training was carried out in a purpose built Confined Space simulator. Participants each took a turn setting up the winch, being lowered into a confined a space and pulling someone out of the confined space. Following this, an emergency was simulated, testing the participants ability to apply a breathing apparatus and quickly and safely get one of their colleagues out of the confined space.
This course was a medium risk Confined Space entry course with training in the use of a breathing apparatus. This is a course we have run many times down the years and we would love to help you ensure all of your employees working in confined spaces are safe. This kind of training is invaluable as it doesn’t just describe a particular situation, it puts participants into the situation. Following this training participants feel confident in their ability to handle an emergency, having applied their skills to an emergency situation before.
