Medium Risk Confined Space Entry Training - TSCS2

Medium Risk Confined Space Entry Training With Escape Breathing Apparatus

Course Reference TSCS2

A staggering number of workers are killed or seriously injured every year working in confined space. This is due to a lack of knowledge of the environment they are working in and unfamiliarisation of equipment they are working with. This course is intended for delegates who require the knowledge to allow them to apply safe working practices, reducing unnecessary risk when entering or working in confined space environments.


The training can be undertaken at our facility, which replicates real life environments and allows for extensive quality feedback due to the infra-red camera recording facility or conducted at the clients site/facility utilising Total Safety’s mobile confined space training unit.


Duration: 1.0 days
