Who Should Attend?
This training is vital for anyone who is called upon to enter a potentially hostile environment (one containing toxic or flammable gases, oxygen deficiency, access problems etc.) in order to carry out his or her tasks. The training is particularly suitable for persons employed in construction, civil engineering and utilities (e.g. gas, water, sewage) operations, including tunnelling, trenching, underpinning, pumping, drainage, pipe-work surveying and underground maintenance work.
The program is divided into two categories:
• Breathing Apparatus (BA) Escape – 1 day
• Breathing Apparatus (BA) Working – 2 day
The1-day session covers the use of 10 minute “escape” set breathing apparatus as part of an emergency evacuation protocol, plus the use of gas monitoring equipment, communication systems, intrinsically safe equipment, harnesses, tripod and winch. It also aims to give candidates a good working knowledge of confined space hazards, atmospheric contaminants, Permit-to Work systems, Risk Assessments, defining and identifying confined spaces and emergency evacuation procedures.
The 2-day session covers all of the above, but with focus placed on the use of BA “Working “ sets for emergency rescue teams, or for use in atmosphere testing in unassessed environments.
Generally, the 1-day session is found to be sufficient in scope for most day-to-day applications, with the 2-day session being supplied for larger or more specialised teams or rescue professionals. All training materials and equipment will be supplied by us and maintained/ calibrated in accordance with regulations.
Under current UK regulations, any person required to carry out any work on the Highway, footways or their curtilage must be trained and assessed as competent and hold a Vocational Qualification in the work they will undertake.
The minimum level of qualification is the City & Guilds New Roads & Street Works (6156) certificate, to either supervisor or operative level. Obtaining it will involve an element of formal training followed by practical exercises and on-site assessment.
CITB Site Safety Plus
This scheme has been designed to provide the building, civil engineering and allied industries with a framework for training and career development. It is aimed at all levels of the workforce.
A series of courses has been developed to fit into the Construction Skills Site Safety Plus framework. This starts with a health and safety awareness day needed to apply for a CSCS labourer’s card, and then progresses to an intermediate level for those about to take on supervisory responsibilities.
The Site Management Safety Training Scheme is designed to assist site managers and potential site managers in developing knowledge, awareness and understanding of their legal, moral and social responsibilities for health, safety and welfare on construction sites. This course is the most widely recognised for the construction industry and is supported by a refresher course.
