Confined Space - Entry, Awareness, & Escape inc Breathing Apparatus
CONFINED SPACE ENTRY (AWARENESS / ESCAPE / BREATHING APPARATUS)
AIM The aim of the course is to train delegates the correct and safe methods of Confined Space Entry including the use of breathing apparatus.
Pre-Requisite Delegates must be physically fit and have a basic understanding of health and safety. Those delegates undertaking breathing apparatus demonstrations must be clean shaven.
Course Duration 1.5 days and will involve some physical exercise.
Maximum Number 8 persons.
Training Aids Lecture notes and audio visual presentation.
Assessment Written assessment.
Certification On successful completion of the course candidates will receive a NETA certificate.
Personal Protective Equipment Equipment can vary from client to client and therefore delegates must bring their own breathing apparatus. Delegates will also need to bring their own PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) which should include safety helmet, overalls, work gloves, safety glasses and safety boots.
Additional Information Meeting the needs and expectations of service users is of the highest priority to our staff. Therefore if you have any concerns or wish to make a comment about the service please contact: info@NETA.co.uk
At the end of the training course, delegates will have:
An appreciation of the Confined Space Regulation 1997 and supporting ACOP L101
A greater understanding of both employer and employee responsibilities
An understanding of how to apply their new learning into their future work activities, via the personal risk assessment approach. Therefore significantly reducing potential injury to themselves and others.

End of course assessment
To deliver the Confined Space Awareness training onsite the following would apply.
Our instructor must see evidence that the following mandatory control measures are in place prior to any entry into any vessel under their supervision, namely:
All entries will be performed under a valid permit to work system. The Risk Assessment and Safe System of Work shall take into account:
Full isolation from all physical and mechanical stored energy
Evidence of gas monitoring/testing prior to entry
Operatives entering with personal gas detectors
A safe means of access/egress via ladder
The supplied ‘A Frame’ suitable for the task, unobstructed by pipework etc.
As you will appreciate it is our intention to meet the expectations of our clients. However, due to the serious consequences of failure to apply safe working practices which may compromise the safety of the delegates and result in serious legal ramifications, if any of the criteria above is not met, unfortunately the practical element must be postponed until the necessary safety precautions can be introduced. In instances where the safety precautions are not met, practical elements will be omitted entirely.
