At Merryhill, we take the safety of our site teams very seriously.

Asbestos can often be found in awkward places such as undercrofts, attics, duct systems and basements. All of these scenarios have one thing in common, they are all often confined spaces.

The HSE defines a confined space as: “a place which is substantially enclosed (though not always entirely), and where serious injury can occur from hazardous substances or conditions within the space or nearby (e.g. lack of oxygen).”

Merryhill work with a number of clients that require our teams to have confined space training. The training provider, 3D’s Training UK Ltd were thorough and the trainer very interactive.

Merryhill have used a number of providers of the years, but this particular course struck a chord as it was delivered in such a positive and engaging way. The way training is delivered is often more important than the content. For a number of the people on the course it was a refresher so keeping people who already have some knowledge can be a challenge.

We’re pleased to say that all people who partook the course all passed with flying colours, well done to all those involved.
