NPORS Confined Spaces – Low Risk Course

The aim of this course is to provide the theoretical knowledge and practical skills when operating in a confined space.

At the end of course delegates will be able to:

  • Define confined spaces
  • Enter a confined space (low risk environments only) individually and as part of a team in a trained, competent manner
  • Detect gas and other hazardous atmospheres
  • Classify NPORS and applications of the types of categories under their control for low, medium and high risk working
  • Assess diseases/hygiene risks
  • Assess working at height – harnesses, tripod and winch
  • Use effective communication and assess manning levels
