Do I require training to carry out works in a confined space? 

The simple answer is YES! Here at Platinum Safety and Training, we make it easy when it comes to deciding what training you need to carry out work in a confined space. We have a range of confined space training courses to suit everyone. 

Day 1 – If you are someone who will be entering and working in the confined space, you will need the basic training course to understand the hazards and risks, work in accordance with legislation, understand permit systems and act as the Mandatory Standby/spotter for confined space workers.

Day 1 + Gas tester – Confined spaces have many hazards, however unsafe atmospheres are one of the most dangerous hazards you may face when working in confined spaces. This training program is an extension of the confined space entry course with a comprehensive understanding on how to check and use gas detectors correctly, to ensure the atmosphere remains safe at all times during confined space works. For many organisations, this training is the minimum required to work in confined spaces and is our most popular training course. Click for more information 

Day 2 – All confined space works must have a minimum amount of control measures to keep workers safe. A person in direct control is required to ensure this happens and they are known as the “permit issuer”. The will have the competencies to carry out risk assessment, understand atmospheric monitoring and issue all work permits including the mandatory “Confined space entry permit”. This training course is for anyone who will be supervising and controlling confined space works. Click for more information
