Working in Medium Risk Confined Spaces – Top Man and Entrant

The Working in Medium Risk Confined Spaces training course provides vital training to employers, employees and sub – contractors who are required to work in confined spaces. Medium Risk areas can be described as having vertical drops with unobstructed access with continuous attachment to a man riding hoist or similar mechanical rescue device. This includes areas where it is not possible to have persons permanently attached to a safety line.

Because we come to you, neither you nor your staff will ever have to travel further than your own place of business.
