Confined Space Entry: High Risk (CSC03)

Working in High Risk confined spaces exposes an individual to a range of potential hazards, some of which may be an immediate threat to life and health. Therefore, specialist training and assessment are required to equip those undertaking this work with the necessary skills and competencies to assess risk, control hazards, and work safely.

Course Aim

This course is about working in confined space environments that have non-standard entries and which, in consequence, makes rescue difficult.

Entry may involve complex entry procedures and there will be work-specific controls and rescue arrangements. It will entail the use of a self-contained open-circuit breathing apparatus, specialist detection equipment, and resuscitation equipment.

It will require the presence of personnel who have designated responsibilities for controlling entry and dealing with emergencies.
