ENABLING YOUR WORKFORCE TO CARRY OUT SAFE AND EFFICIENT CONFINED SPACE ENTRY AND RESCUE.

The Water UK National Confined Spaces competency Standards were introduced to standardise procedures throughout the water industry and to consistently assess competence levels of persons required to work in confined spaces and enable them to attain accreditation by City and Guilds.

The duration of these courses range from 1 to 3 days and are suitable for persons who work in confined space.  The training ranges from safe entry only through to the using of compressed air escape, re-breather and self-contained breathing apparatus, including separate courses for top-man and supervisors.

Didsbury Engineering can also offer confined space training courses which align with the requirements of the NEW Energy Utility Skills National Occupational Standard.  These new standards deal with low, medium and high risk confined spaces across a wide range of industries and take into consideration factors such as the number of workers involved, the access and egress to and from the place of work, the type of work being performed and if movement away from the entry point is required.  Each added difficulty requiring a higher level of training.  There is a specialised course on the rescue and recovery of casualties from confined spaces.
