If you or your colleagues work in, or are going to work in a confined space, then you’re gonna need to be prepared. Confined spaces are, well… confined, and they have the potential to be very dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing in them. And if you’re managing people who are going to be working in confined spaces, you have a duty of care to make sure all the proper precautions are in place.
Taking this course will help you recognize the hazards of working in a confined space, what the consequences of not following good practice could be, and what regulations are in place to protect people working in confined spaces. You’ll also discover some useful tips to help you mitigate the risks of working in confined spaces.
When you think of a confined space, is your mind instantly drawn to scenes from movies. You know, things like when Luke, Han, Wookie, and the Princess are stuck in the garbage compactor, or Indiana Jones is trapped under a ceiling that’s covered in spikes and closing in on him. Even the caped crusader gets stuck in some tight scrapes. But we’re not talking about that. Well, not exactly.
We’re talking about working in confined spaces. A confined space in the context of this course refers to a place that is “substantially enclosed, where serious injury, or worse, can occur from hazardous substances or dangerous conditions within the space, or nearby, for example, from a lack of oxygen”. Hmm, not so exciting now. Luckily, this course is designed to help you avoid that grizzly fate. You’re welcome.
Getting into a tight squeeze is something lots of our favourite characters are used to. But it’s not just the stuff of movies. It’s a subject that needs to be taken really seriously in order to protect people’s lives. This course uses some familiar movie characters, as well as some clever humour, to deliver this vital information through storytelling. Approved by IOSH, one of the world’s largest Health and Safety organisations, the course is also dotted with interactive knowledge check questions, so learners can check what they know as they go. The course is split into sections using an interactive menu, so learners can move at their own pace, and the final quiz lets learners apply their new knowledge to a variety of question types, assessing what they’ve learned.
This course also has an assessment at the end which allows learners to test their understanding and helps businesses demonstrate a level of competence in the topic.
With a bank of questions learners will get randomised assessments which means if people do fail the assessment, they aren't faced with the same quiz again; after all you want to test learners knowledge and not their ability to remember the right button to press second time around.
Everyone has the right to learn and learner need can vary demanding on environment or disabilities. This course comes with transcripts so people have text options for an media, subtitles for all videos and is screen reader friendly with alternative text.
