Content: The CP/CW training on working in confined spaces seems to be so comprehensive and systematically conducted that there is little room for further improvement. Despite it is a mandatory requirement of having such training to qualify the risk assessors and workers for working in confined spaces, related accidents are still unavoidable, some cases are even more severe and lead to multiple fatalities. At the seminar, the speaker will share his observations and opinions on the common pitfalls for working in confined spaces which may be overlooked even by a seasoned competent person.
