CONFINED SPACE ENTRY
Confined Space Entry training is crucial for individuals to work safely work in confined spaces.
The Echo3 Confined Space Entry course ensures that participants understand the legal requirements, safety protocols, and emergency response procedures necessary work safely in confined spaces. Promoting a secure working environment and compliance with regulations.
In the UK, regulations require employers to provide appropriate confined space entry training to workers, as outlined in the Confined Spaces Regulations 1997 and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
This CPD-accredited course covers critical safety topics, in a carbon-negative and cost-effective way.
The objectives of an online Confined Space Entry course are to equip participants with the knowledge necessary for safe entry and work within and outside confined spaces.
Participants will understand the legal and regulatory frameworks governing confined space entry, identifying potential hazards, implementing effective risk assessment strategies, and understanding safety procedures and equipment usage.
The training focuses on developing the ability to recognise and respond to emergencies in confined spaces, including rescue procedures.
Through engaging video content participants gain a comprehensive understanding of confined space entry protocols, fostering a culture of safety within the workplace.
UNIT 1 | INTRODUCTION
Firstly, we outline, what confined spaces are, confined space legislation and provide examples of confined spaces.
UNIT 2 | DANGERS OF CONFINED SPACES
Secondly, we look in more detail at why confined spaces pose serious risks to employees if appropriate precautions are not taken. We highlight the main hazards of oxygen deficiency, toxic gases and the importance of atmospheric testing.
UNIT 3 | SAFE SYSTEMS OF WORK
Thirdly, we cover the safe systems needed to fulfil legal obligations and reduce the risks. Specifically, risk assessments, suggested control measures and safety equipment.
UNIT 4 | RESPONSIBILTIES
Fourthly, we detail the roles of the different team members (Supervisor, Observer and Entrant).
UNIT 5 | QUIZ

CONFINED SPACE LAWS
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, the Management of Health and Safety Regulations 1999, RIDDOR and the Confined Spaces Regulations 1997 all combine to place obligations on employers and employees with respect to work in confined spaces.
Key responsibilities include:
- Risk assessthe work
- If possible, avoid confined space entry work, e.g. by doing the work from the outside
- Follow a safe system of work
- 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 employees, this Confined Space course presents a cost and time effective way for employers to meet their ‘safe system of work’ duties in respect of training.
WHAT IS A CONFINED SPACE?
The Confined Space Regulations 1997 define 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”.
A confined space refers to any enclosed space which poses a risk due to free-flowing liquids, excess of oxygen, high temperatures, flammable, explosive or oxygen deprived areas on site. Working in confined spaces requires a high level of awareness when it comes to the risks involved.
CONFINED SPACE HAZARDS
Hazards vary depending on where the confined space work is being carried out. For example, drowning because of flooding or asphyxiation from contaminants such as dust or grain.
Many of the hazards cannot be seen, for example noxious fumes or reduced oxygen levels. Therefore, an authorised gas tester is often required, to ensure the atmosphere is safe.
Hydrogen sulphide (H2S) is a particularly deadly gas. Heavier that air, it can pool in sewers, manure pits and oil tanks.
