Confined Space Training

Confined Space Training

A staggering number of workers are killed or seriously injured every year in confined spaces in the UK due to a lack of knowledge of confined space environments and the equipment used within them.

AIS Survivex have therefore developed exciting confined space training courses for awareness of confined space entry, working and evacuation.

Course Overview

The Confined Space training course provides an awareness of working in low or medium risk confined space environments. 

Delegates will gain hands-on experience of applying safe working practices and reducing unecessary risk when working in a low risk confined space environment.

The training is delivered in AIS Survivex's state-of-the-art confined space structure which simulates a real-life enclosure.

  • Safely access and egress from a confined space

  • Work in a confined space
  • Evacuate a confined space safely and controlled upon the activation of a gas detector
  • Use personal fall protective equipment including harness, fall arrest lanyard, restraint lanyards, tri-pod, davit and retrieval/man riding winches
