City & Guilds Working in Low Risk Confined Spaces

Course Overview

Working in Low Risk Confined Spaces provides the knowledge and skills to safely work in confined spaces associated with lone working where the application of proper procedures is required. The course specifically focuses on confined spaces presenting no likely risk of flooding with adequate ventilation.
