One solution to your emergency needs 
 

 
EFS Certificate of Achievement – Safe Working in Confined Spaces 
 

 
A number of people are killed or seriously injured in confined spaces each year in the UK. This happens in a wide range of industries, from those involving complex plant to simple storage vessels. Those killed include people working in the confined space and those who try to rescue them without proper training and equipment. 
 
Regulation 3 of the Confined Spaces Regulations 1997 defines that every employer shall ‘ensure compliance with the provisions of these Regulations in respect of any work carried out by his employees; and ensure compliance, so far as is reasonably practicable, with the provisions of these Regulations in respect of any work carried out by persons other than his employees insofar as the provisions relate to matters which are within his control’. 
 
Course Overview 
 
A Confined Space means any place, including any chamber, tank, vat, silo, pit, trench, pipe, sewer, flue, well or other similar space in which, by virtue of its enclosed nature, there arises a reasonably foreseeable specified risk. This course will give candidates an understanding of the Confined Spaces Regulations 1997 and duties under those regulations. The practical element will be about entering and working in a low risk environment with adequate natural or mechanical ventilation, learning how to adopt safe systems of work and consider rescue procedures in the event of an emergency.
