Product Description

Course subject:  Working in and Rescue from Confined Spaces.
Intermediate levels CP2/AP2

The Focus is on mitigating risk undertaken by industrial workers; in civil engineering, utilities energy and food production. Course elements are fully compliant with the HSE's guidance to the Confined Spaces Regulations (1997) but we teach a programme consistent with the HSE's previous guide, GS5 because it invokes better operational practices and a wider knowledge base than represented by the 'minimum' requirements of the 1997 regulation.


Day One:

Hazard Awareness & Risk Estimation. (150 minutes)
a) CoSHH based on YOUR risk: An introduction to the Health and Safety Executive’s guidance, policy and current regulation of Confined Space entry and a clear understanding of when a space may be considered confined.

How to manage Entry Permits, appraise method statements and construct a Rescue Plan

Gas, fume, anoxia and Fire Evolution - characteristics: including Flash-over, back-draught, toxic smoke products, common gases encountered, spark hazards and what is meant by intrinsic safety, LEL, UEL, flash point significance and appropriate selection of PPE (100 minutes) 

b) First Aid precautions and actions: Focus, with practical demonstrations, on rapid casualty assessment, the ABC of Resuscitation and preventing bleeding. This session is aimed at people without detailed knowledge so that they may weigh up the relative risks of immediate extrication, use recovery positions, provide assisted ventilation to a patient and attain the principles of cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. (150 minutes) 

BA wearer introduction: Use of Compressed Air Breathing Apparatus (EEBA {practical} and CABA {theory}), its cautions and limitations, and team procedure (practical), including use of Stage Control Boards and lines. (100 minutes) 

Day Two: 

Personal Safety & Damage Limitation. (120 minutes)
a) Further Selection and use of Personal Protective Equipment and limits of use theory (including Breathing Apparatus). This session gives confidence in understanding proper use & selection of PPE associated with particular site risks and how incorrect use and understanding of the risks and the PPE used has turned a risk into an accident. PPE records keeping and proper maintenance
b) Emergency Action Plan.
c) Standard Operating Procedure and Emergency Communications.

Practical, casualty rescue Exercise. (320 minutes)
a) Use of PPE & BA. Donning, doffing and safety check procedure.
b) Tool-box talks and team briefs.
b) Mock Rescue using on site props, working in teams and an overview on search procedure and safely accessing objectives.

        Candidates will be granted Certificates of competence if they demonstrate practical understanding to the instructor. Certificates will specify the PPE used in connection with the hazards covered under The Confined Spaces Regulations (1997) and other regulations under which work may fall.
Individual Assessment will be made continuously through the course by the instructor. There is no written examination for one courses but the intermediate courses require satisfactory completion of a short, written test.

Courses are organised either at the client site, or here, in Telford, depending on what best suits the client organisation. The commission of all courses requires that we mutually discuss and appraise the client's training needs, based on recently conducted Risk Assessments and current statements of safe working practice, for specific tasks. 
Where possible, client site training is preferred in order to better address topical hazards and conduct realistic training.
