The City & Guilds Training Scheme 6150 is the Water Industry Standard. All Water Companies participated in the formulation of this scheme to ensure that training quality is consistent and accepted nationally. Candidates who successfully complete higher level training, up to CG6150-03, will automatically be accredited with lower risk schemes.
This course is designed for medium risk confined spaces, in line with the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for working in confined spaces. (NC1 NC2 NC3 – see below)
Low Risk Confined Space – NC1 Classification
Low risk shallow entry with adequate natural or mechanical ventilation, where access is simple and unobstructed and there is no likely risk of flooding; for example: meter pits, valve chambers, booster-pumping stations, PRV chambers.
Medium Risk Confined Space – NC2 Classification
Vertical direct unobstructed access with continuous attachment to a man-riding hoist or similar mechanical rescue device.
Medium Risk Confined Space – NC3 Classification
When it is not possible to have persons permanently attached to a safety line. Usually it will be a team entry which moves away from the entry point; for example: man entry sewers, utility service subway tunnels, aquaducts and complex wet walls. Working without an attached rescue line and includes working away from the point of entry.
The CG6150-02 Course includes the use of 15 minutes Emergency Life Support Apparatus (Escape Set), but does NOT qualify personnel in the use of full breathing apparatus.
This 2 day CG6150-02 Medium Risk Confined Space course is designed for all persons that are engaged in confined space activities. The course is designed for persons working in NC Level 3 Medium Risk environments.
