City & Guilds 6150-02 Medium Risk Confined Space – 2 Days
The aim of this 2-day course is to prepare candidates to enter, work and exit low and medium risk confined spaces safely. It provides an in-depth understanding of the requirements of the law, legislation, Safe Systems of Work and an awareness of confined space risk assessments.
Practical exercises are completed at our purpose-built confined space training facility.
Delegates will descend/ascend into a designated confined space and crawl through variably sized and shaped tunnels under various simulated emergency conditions that include noise, limited light and variable safe atmospheric conditions including smoke. The course includes the use of Emergency Life Support Apparatus (Escape Set) but does NOT qualify personnel in the use of full breathing apparatus.
This course is in line with the National Occupational Standards
(NOS) for working in confined spaces. (NC1 NC2 NC3 – see below for breakdown).
All persons who successfully complete the practical and written test will receive a City & Guilds 6150-02 Certificate in Working in Medium Risk Confined Spaces. The certificate is valid for three years.

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, aqueducts and complex wet walls. Working without an attached rescue line and includes working away from the point of entry.
