Confined Space Entry: Medium Risk & Entry Controller (CSC09)

Entry to the confined space may involve manual and/or mechanical access equipment for example:

  • Vertical entry normally using a ladder or man-riding winch, both requiring fall protection and means of assisted rescue such as a rescue winch
  • Horizontal entry such as walking or climbing into the confined space or working away from the bottom of a vertical entry. Such types of entry will involve more than one person entering the confined space.

Course Aim

This course is about working in confined space environments where there is a reasonably foreseeable chance that a specified risk may be present. It will require the use of escape breathing apparatus. It will involve the presence of one of more people, positioned outside of the confined space, who have designated responsibilities for controlling the entry and dealing with emergencies.
