Confined Space Awareness

Confined space awareness training

A workplace is considered as a ‘confined space’ when it isn’t necessarily designed for people to enter easily or for them to manoeuvre about with ease once inside. In most cases a confined space is just large enough for people to enter and work inside, but the entrance and exit is limited and therefore space inside is not made for spending long lengths of time in.

Examples of confirmed spaces include:

  • Tanks
  • Storage bins
  • Manholes
  • Tunnels
  • Pipelines

An employer must be aware of the legislations around confined spaces in order to ensure the safety of their employees. The Confined Spaces Regulations 1997 contains details on how an employer must avoid sending a worker into a confined space unless it is absolutely essential.
