Confined spaces seminar success at University of Stirling
29 June 2016
There was a strong turnout for Develop Training Ltd (DTL)’s latest confined spaces awareness seminar in Scotland yesterday. Delegates from companies including AECOM, SERCO, Scotmas and ISS Facility Services joined DTL at the Stirling Court Hotel to go through the relevant regulations for confined spaces and understand better what training their operatives require before working in such conditions.
Set in the leafy, scenic grounds of the University of Stirling, delegates learnt about the Aberfan disaster of the 1960s, how to identify a confined space and mitigate the associated risks, and lastly were given a demonstration of a safe entry into a confined space by trainer Ted Jackson* using our dedicated mobile training unit.
Our popular mobile confined space training unit enables us to deliver City & Guilds-approved confined space training on your doorstep, minimising work disruption while keeping your staff properly skilled to carry out the tasks associated with their job role.
Delegates were given a copy of our in-depth confined spaces whitepaper, which looks in detail at the subject and considers everything from their definition and the risks associated with them through to employers’ duties and training requirements as set out in UK legislations. It’s a must-have guide for anybody involved in the co-ordination of learning and development in people.
* The demonstration was Ted Jackson’s last in a 16 year career with DTL which has seen him deliver training all over the UK across a range of disciplines. He leaves us for pastures new this week and we wish him every success in the future.
