Course overview

A 5 day training course for individuals who are to be designated as an authorised person implementing safe systems of work for confined spaces. Our popular health and safety course is structured around the specific safety rules of the MOD and procedures contained in their Health and Safety Handbook JSP 375 Volume 3 Chapter 6. If your sector does not have specific safety procedure rules then JSP 375 is a relevant framework against which to learn, but if you would like to incorporate other sectors or specifically tailor a course to your sector or safety rules, please call us on 0800 876 6708.
