Medium Risk Entry into Confined Spaces

This course is about working in confined space environments where there is a medium risk that a specified hazard 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. 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 as well as horizontal entry such as walking or climbing into the confined space or working away from the bottom of a vertical entry, with limited use of a rescue line. Such types of entry may involve more than one person entering the confined space.

Medium Risk Entry into Confined Spaces

Working in confined spaces exposes an individual to a range of potential hazards, some of which may threaten injury and, in some cases, may possibly lead to death. Therefore, specialist training and assessment is required to equip those undertaking this work with the necessary skills and competencies to assess risk, control hazards and work safely.
