COTS adds Confined Space training

COTS have recently invested in the design, build and accreditation of a confined space chamber at its training centre in  Swansea.  The newly accredited City & Guilds approved centre offers a very well equipment chamber with work stations, full 700mm access area and fall rest system.  Training is delivered to the 6150 standard and has been awarded an “excellent” on the recent external verification visit by City & Guilds.

Courses are offered covering Low, Medium and High risk training together with Emergency Rescue and Recovery of casualties, both for initial training and those candidates requiring refresher certification.  Our courses are approved for both water and non water industries.

COTS hold a range of gas monitors, harnesses, lanyards and breathing apparatus (BA) training using Drager PP10 and CF10 units full serviced and calibrated to the highest industry standards.

What is a confined space ?

A confined space is a place which is substantially enclosed (though not always entirely), and where serious injury can occur from hazardous substances or conditions within the space or nearby (e.g. lack of oxygen).
