Working in Confined Spaces

Working in confined spaces can be extremely dangerous if precautions aren’t taken. Due to this, the government has passed several confined spaces regulations over the years in an effort to reduce accidents, incidents and ill-health due to the nature of this work.

The Health and Safety Executive (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)’.
