In A Tight Spot – Training For Area 7

Two weeks ago nine people from Area 7 – Ops Managers, Company Fitter and Plant staff – went on a one day’s training with Arco at Leeds Plant for Managing Confined Spaces.

Afterwards everyone agreed it was informative, defining what actually a confined space was, gaining a good understanding on legislation, RAMS, rescue plans, permits and how to safely set up confined space entry.

Tuesday and Wednesday were again with Arco at our York Plant with the mobile Confined Space Training Unit and again they all gained a good understanding of how to prepare to enter a confined space, hazards, gas monitoring, PPE, RPE and rescue equipment.

A big thanks to the guys at Arco for the superb training and thanks to all who attended for the input and banter over the three days.
