Confined spaces
  • Risk

The course is essential for workers to identify spaces that require work permits, with the aim of reducing and preventing accidents and aftermath arising from these activities through a program of permits to enter confined spaces.

Confined spaces are places with limited inlet and outlet openings and unfavourable natural ventilation, where toxic or flammable contaminants can accumulate or there may be an oxygen-deficient atmosphere, where there cannot be a occupation of workers.


The participant will be convinced of the importance of applying the procedures and other tools applicable for entry to confined spaces, thus avoiding accidents that cause damage to his person, colleagues or to the work facilities.

You will gain theoretical-practical knowledge on the safe and efficient realization of work in confined spaces. Identify the risks of a confined space and implement preventive measures. The application of safe working procedures for work in confined spaces. The use of autonomous breathing equipment. Learn how to make effective appropriations or blockages of facilities. Perform access and rescue techniques in confined spaces.
