Who Should Attend
Those who work in low risk confined spaces:
A low risk confined space exists when there is a shallow entry/ exit with adequate natural or mechanical ventilation; where access is simple and unobstructed and there is no likely risk of flooding (for example meter pits, valve chambers, booster pumping stations and PRV chambers).
Low risk confined spaces would be associated with lone working, requiring the application of appropriate procedures.
