Why take the Confined Space Entry course?

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires employers to ensure the safety of their employees and others. This responsibility is reinforced by regulations.

The Confined Spaces Regulations 1997 link to external website apply where the assessment identifies risks of serious injury from work in confined spaces.  The following key duties are contained within the regulations

  • avoid entry to confined spaces, e.g. by doing the work from the outside
  • if entry to a confined space is unavoidable, follow a safe system of work
  • put in place adequate emergency arrangements before the work start

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 link to external website require employers and self-employed people to carry out a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks for all work activities for the purpose of deciding what measures are necessary for safety. With work in confined spaces this means identifying the hazards present, assessing the risks and determining what precautions to take
