1 Day Confined Space Training & Escape BA


This 1 Day Confined Space Entry Training Course with Escape BA has content and practical elements that are designed to train delegates to operate in 95% of all confined space locations. Sometimes referred to as a Medium Risk Confined Space Entry Course, our team has been delivering this course for over 15 years. In this time we have trained thousands of delegates, ensuring its popularity and making it the first-choice course among Ireland's leading industrial and construction organisations.

The course content teaches delegates how to Prepare, Enter And Work Safely In Confined Spaces using Escape Breathing Apparatus. The course brings them through the safe work system options for working in areas up to Medium Risk Level and includes using an Escape BA (self-rescue device) as part of a safe work system. Specific Hazards, Risk Assessment, Permits, Atmospheric Gases and Emergencies are all covered.

Practical training takes place in out simulated confined space training unit. Delegates are trained to competently use a Gas Detector, Tripod, Confined Space Harness and Escape Breathing Apparatus (EBA). Each learner is issued with their own equipment and assess individual and as part of a team.             

PPE Requirements 

Delegates should bring suitable PPE (hi-visibility vest, hard hat, safety boots, knee-pads & warm clothing).

Training Equipment

Our courses use continuous flow 10 Minute Escape Sets (hood type) as standard. However, we carry a full range of equipment from all mainstream manufacturer and delegates can opt to use positive pressure or constant flow devices.

We use MSA, RAE and Honeywell gas detectors and delegates are welcome to bring their own devices should the have any questions on setup or want us to perform setup.
