We also offer a highly professional consultancy service for those requiring risk assessments, method statements or safe systems of work for hazardous tasks.

If you wish to use your own trained personnel to carry out work in confined spaces, we can provide experienced, competent and accredited rescue / safety cover using an Emergency Response Team.
Confined Space Rescue Training

Every year a number of people lose their lives or are seriously injured due to working in confined spaces and its usually due to them being unaware of the dangers, poorly training or not having the correct safety equipment. Confined space courses are designed to help people understand more about safe work practices, suitable control measures and the law regarding to staying safe at work.

A confined space is defined as any area including a chamber, vessel, tank, silo, pit or other similar space that is largely enclosed and is classified as a foreseeable specified risk of serious injury.

A risk can be any of the following:

Fire or explosion causing serious injury
Gas, fume, vapour or lack of oxygen causing loss of consciousness
Increase in body temperature causing loss of consciousness
Increase in the level of liquid causing drowning
Free flowing solids causing asphyxiation

Confined Space Regulations

Confined spaces can be deadly and in 1997 regulations were introduced to control the industry and the self-employed. It’s now the law that if you’re involved with entering, controlling or supervising people involved with confined space work, you must have receive training. Failure to comply with the 1997 Confined Space Regulations can result in prosecution.
With some people being killed or seriously injured in the UK every year, this also includes a large number of people trying rescue others without sufficient equipment or training.
The Confined Space Regulations state the following:
Avoid entry to confined spaces (for example, working from outside
If entry to a confined space is unavoidable, follow a safe system of work
Put in place adequate emergency arrangements before the work starts
At REAX we’re fully compliant with current legislation and accredited by the following governing bodies; City & Guilds, ARQIVA and Qualsafe.

First Responder Training

Community first responders are trained to assess the situation, providing immediate first aid if needed, and establish the patient’s previous medical history. Sometimes they can simply be a very vital second pair of hands to an ambulance crew when they arrive.

As well as basic first aid equipment, they carry automated external defibrillators (AEDs), and are trained and equipped to provide oxygen therapy. Having someone in the community who has been trained in first aid and can reach the patient quickly makes all the difference.

First Responder Training

We offer a comprehensive range of health and safety training to a wide range of industries. We have developed our specialist skills, experience and knowledge from working in difficult and potentially high risk environments, and our team of qualified trainers not only provide expert training, but can impart real life scenarios of situations they have faced, to bring the learning to life.

We are also able to offer first class practical training in our state of the art confined space facilities, to prepare and train anyone who works in confined spaces. Here we can simulate how to prepare for entry, how to work in a safe manner while in a potentially dangerous environment and then create emergency situations where candidates are taught to escape in a safe manner.
