How work in a confined space

How Work in a Confine  Space Safely?

A confined space is one that is both enclosed, and primarily held, and which also has a reasonably foreseeable risk to workers of fire, explosion, loss of consciousness, asphyxiation or drowning even risk of death or serious injury from hazardous substances or dangerous conditions such as lack of oxygen. Some confined spaces are fairly easy to identify, eg enclosures with limited openings:

You must carry out a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks for all work activities to decide what measures are necessary for safety under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations. Working in confined spaces means identifying the hazards present, assessing the risks, and determining what precautions to take.

You need to check if the work can be done another way to avoid entry or work in confined spaces. Better work planning or a different approach can reduce the need for confined space working.


If working in a CONFINED space, check:

ØWhether an entry permit required?

ØThe atmosphere is continuously monitored for contaminant gases by trained operators?

ØThere is personnel trained in emergency rescue procedures at all times outside of the confined space?

ØThere is a physical link between the worker in the confined space and the rescue personnel?
