6160-01 Level 2 Working in Low Risk Confined Spaces
(1 Day-Standalone-Entry level course)

A low risk confined space exists where there is easy entry/exit and natural C-G-confined-spaces-6150-01ventilation. Candidates will check the atmosphere with a gas monitor prior to entry. If the gas monitor alarms, then do not entre and notify the entry controller immediately.

If a gas monitor alarms while working in a low risk confined space then, candidates must exit the confined space immediately and notify the entry controller.

Low risk confined spaces is the only place you can have a lone worker, but this requires appropriate procedures.
