CONFINED SPACE ONLINE COURSE | Confined spaces have the potential to be very dangerous places to work.
Hazardous gases in confined spaces can be especially dangerous. Hydrogen sulphide, has factored in dozens of workplace fatalities. Other chemical hazards include, oxygen enrichment, oxygen deficiency, excessive temperature, flowing liquid and flowing solids.
Those who work in confined spaces must be aware of these hazards and understand how to avoid them in order to remain safe.
- Understand Confined Spaces legislation
- Know the hazards typical to confined spaces
- Duties of each confined space team member
- Dangers of entry rescues
- Preparations required for making a rescue

Together, the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, The Management of Health and Safety Regulations 1999, The Confined Spaces Regulations 1997 combine to put various obligations on employers and employees with respect to work in confined spaces.
- Risk Assess the work
- If possible, avoid confined space entry work. E.g. by doing the work from the outside.
- Follow a safe system of work; Note: A safe system of work includes appropriate training, such as this course.
- Before any work is started, have a rescue plan in the event of an emergency.
In addition to helping employers meet moral responsibilities for the safety of employers, this course provides an option to help employers meet their ‘safe system of work’ duties in respect of training.

The Confined Space Regulations 1997 defines confined spaces as “any place, including any chamber, tank, vat, silo, pit, trench, pipe, sewer, flue, well or other similar space in which, by virtue of its enclosed nature, there arises a reasonably foreseeable specified risk;”
