This safety in confined space training will educate learners to spot hazards and access risks in confined spaces. The course also provides safety instructions and procedures in the event of an emergency situation.
Working in confined spaces often presents hazards that can easily kill people. Every year, many are killed or seriously injured whilst working in confined spaces. Incidents often occur as employees are unaware of dangers, are not well-trained and lack safety equipment.
