Confined Space Training

Book Now 01563 573 785

What is it?

An enclosed or partially enclosed area or workspace where there is a risk of serious injury from hazardous substances or conditions either within the space or nearby e.g. a lack of oxygen.

The serious bit

Although not a high figure in comparison with some other work activities, there continues to be a number of fatalities and serious injuries arising from work that is conducted in confined spaces, 60% of which are sadly those attempting to rescue others. It is expected that an increased focus on training will help to reduce or eliminate such incidents.

The legal bit

The Confined Spaces Regulations 1997 sets out 3 important requirements;

  1. Avoid working in confined spaces where possible
  2. Where unavoidable ensure a safe system of work is enforced
  3. Ensure emergency arrangements are in place prior to work commencing.

When developing a safe system of work, you must consider the experience and training requirements of all the individuals including those employees entering the confined space, those who are part of the rescue team, and the designated first aiders.
