Confined Space Training

Confined Space Rescue Courses

Confined spaces pose specific hazards to those working in the full range of industrial environments. Rescue teams that are tasked with performing confined space technical rescues must also have the appropriate training to meet their operational need. Rescue 3 Europe offers a range of confined space courses, at all levels, from awareness, through to gas monitoring, rescue technician, and instructor level. Rescue 3’s instructors draw upon years of experience and training in order to impart this specialised knowledge, to internationally recognised standards. Safe working in Confined Spaces (SWCS)

Using simple techniques and industry standard equipment, you will learn how you can free a colleague from a dangerous situation in confined spaces. The rapid release of this trapped person must be your highest priority, to prevent further injury.
