7 Types of Confined Spaces Training at Industry Training Services

At Industry Training Services, we offer a variety of confined spaces training depending on the level of risk, covering every potential hazard. We have four different confined space practical areas with different offerings/configurations that provide practical training that’s specific to your needs. We understand it can be confusing figuring out which type of confined spaces training it is that you need, so we have covered each type of training in this blog so that you can better understand which training is the right one for you. Although we offer the following structured, accredited confined spaces training courses, we also offer bespoke courses, not only for those in the construction industry- we have also administered tailored confined spaces training for businesses such as Moy Park, Dunbia, Aurivo, Lac Patrick, and Ready Egg. Additionally, we offer these specialised courses remotely, across the island of Ireland (Dublin, Cork, Meath, etc) to train employees onsite.

“Good location, great facilities & equipment, all in great working condition. There was a great practical side to this course (confined spaces) with realistic situations that are relevant to our workplace. Really enjoyed the new shipping container exercise, a great addition to the training.”

The Dunbia Team

Confined spaces are a common hazard in the construction industry. Individuals entering these zones must be appropriately trained according to the level of risk, as required by law. Dangerous gases and toxic chemicals, as well as a lack of oxygen, are common risks. Every year, there are a number of fatalities and serious wounds as a result of confined spaces therefore It is critical to raise awareness and receive practical training.
