Confined Space with Practical Workshop (Telecommunication)

espace clos telecom


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.).

This training defines confined space (within a practical workshop framework) emphasizing on learning and experimentation, allowing all participants to use the relevant equipment (ventilation, gas detectors, etc.) within realistic simulations.

Contractors, employees and subcontractors in the telecommunication field should be aware of the risks related to working in confined spaces, such as those that can lead to suffocation, poisoning as well as all the risks of explosions and falls, or even death.
