Confined Space (Aerospace)

Espaces Clos (Aérospatiale)


Training about confined space, those entirely or partially enclosed areas, unfit for occupancy. Confined spaces are uneasy to access and getting out of them imposes challenges. They are therefore a threat to workers’ health and safety (for example : cisterns, tanks, shafts, aircraft wings, etc.).

Prime contractors, employees or subcontractors who must acknowledge the risk involved with confined space, such as those that may lead to asphyxia, intoxications, as well as explosion and fall hazard, or even to death.
