The Vital Fire Solutions confined spaces awareness course and refresher

Contact UsAbout Us

This course aims to provide delegates with a thorough understanding of the dangers of confined space access, both in terms of access, whilst working in the confined space and egress. It is a blend of theory and practical exercises to challenge and educate delegates to the dangers of working in confined spaces.

Our instructors are the same ones who train the Fire Fighters in this subject. We take a risk-based approach to ensure the right level of training is provided to the personnel, without putting them into situations they don’t need to be in. We aim to deliver most of this training at our custom-built training centre, however it can also be delivered on customers site as well.
