Confined Space Medium Risk Requalification

Overview

Working in confined spaces exposes an individual to a multitude of potential hazards, some of which threaten injury and, in some instances, death. It follows then that specialist training and assessment is required to equip those undertaking work in these environments with the necessary skills and competencies to assess risks, control hazards and perform respective work in a safe mode.

The two defining features of a confined space, according to regulation, are:

* The space is enclosed
* The presence of a specified risk

Upon identifying a confined space a person(s) must undertake a risk assessment to determine the nature of specified hazards that could be encountered and the probability of encountering them. This will then lead to the classification of the confined space at low, medium or high risk and trigger the use of equipment and procedures appropriate to the confined space environment.

This course aims to ensure candidates are aware of the potential risks involved in working in confined spaces against the National Occupational Standard (NOS). Candidates will receive a realistic experience using our purpose built confined space training complex.

A medium risk confined space is defined as when it is not possible to have persons permanently attached to a safety line. Usually it will be a team entry which moves away from the entry point e.g. man entry sewers, utility service subway tunnels, aqueducts and complex wet wells. Working without an attached rescue line and includes working away from the point of entry. Any candidate who is successful in the Medium Risk course is automatically covered for Low Risk environments.

Testimonials

I am writing to express our whole-hearted gratitude for the hospitality you Company provided on the recent High Risk Confined Space and Rescue course.  The professionalism and patience shown from the initial interest to final booking was very much appreciated.  The extra time put in by Expedient was certainly worthwhile and hopefully provided the foundations for a continual business association.  It was a privilege for our team to work with such a dedicated civilian company who tailored the course to suit our needs. Such service and rapport builds great working relationships, I will certainly be recommending Expedient for any similar training requirements through my Chain of Command.

The Confined Space course that myself and my colleagues attended at your training centre was very well received by all, we found it well delivered and the practical sessions were especially pertinent to our future operational duties. During the course the trainer took the time to review the method and risk assessments I had written for the job we were soon to start. On our first entry into a real life confined space all the training delivered by Expedient Training came into play all too soon as we had a real life emergency evacuation. We realised from that point on the value of good training.

Claire and all her team, in particular Maria, made our annual training event a success. Delivering 15 different courses , over 2 weeks for 21 staff is a huge task. No request was too difficult and all our training aims and objectives for this year were met. The feedback from our staff has been all positive. This has been the fourth successful year of training with Expedient and we intend to carry on using their services in the future. Many thanks for making the very complicated training programme a success.
