PETA to launch confined spaces training
Coming in Autumn 2019!
PETA has announced the launch of two new courses in the autumn; Confined Space Entry and Awareness and Working in Medium Risk Confined Spaces.
Both courses will be delivered at our training centre in Cosham, where a confined space unit will be in place to aid the attendees’ learning. The unit, a 20-ft shipping container, is due for delivery at the end of July and will be fitted out as a City & Guilds-standard confined space unit so that realistic, practical scenarios can be carried out as part of the courses.
The unit will enable PETA to offer scheduled courses throughout the year on an open course basis, providing very cost-effective training solutions to businesses. Company-sponsored courses will also be offered, where the day can be tailored to meet specific customer needs. Using our own facility ensures the environment and support is in place to provide truly powerful learning.
The new courses will be offered from within PETA’s Safety, Health and Environmental department. Covering both practical and theoretical training, Confined Space Entry and Awareness is a one-day course and Working in Medium Risk Confined Spaces is a City & Guilds-accredited course spanning two days.
These courses are suitable for operatives and any person who is exposed to working in confined spaces. Course attendees will develop an understanding of the relevant legislation relating to confined spaces, fully experience the hazards and risks associated with this kind of work and the attendant control measures.
Confined Space Entry and Awareness covers many topics such as: hazards and risks of working in confined spaces, identification and application of control measures, safe use and pre-inspection of equipment, awareness of breathing apparatus – purpose and type, and the use and importance of safe systems of work. The date of the first course will be 11 October with further dates in November, February, March, June and August.
Working in Medium Risk Confined Spaces covers many topics including: identification of the various hazards and risks presented when working in confined spaces, identification and application of appropriate control measures, safe use and pre-inspection of equipment, the use and importance of safe systems of work, and reacting safely and effectively in an emergency. The date of the first course is 2 December, with a further five course dates scheduled for 2020.
