This confined space training course is about entering and working in a low risk environment with adequate natural or mechanical ventilation. The access appears simple and unobstructed and there is no likely risk of flooding (for example; meter pits, valve chambers, stairwells). If the operative is only checking areas no deeper than 1200mm with easy access openings using a gas detector where standing up in an alarm situation would render them safe, they will need to take the 6150-01 course. This only allows for working in NC1 confined spaces.
