A level 3 training course accredited from City and Guilds, this comprehensive course covers all aspects of managing a team of professionals who will be working with high risk confined spaces. The top man role within a high risk confined environment is seen as more dangerous than that of a traditional top man, due to the level of risk and the possibility of further risks arising within the confined space.
By taking this course candidates will learn the responsibilities of the top man, best practice in the workplace and will receive the knowledge necessary to implement a safe system of work. Upon completion the candidate will be able to safely advise, manage and direct fellow colleagues in a responsible manner to ensure accidents don’t occur in dangerous high risk confined spaces.
Who should attend the course?
Level 3 will suit you if you work in the industry and want to get the qualifications to be able to cope with emergencies in confined spaces.
