Confined Spaces


A confined space can be any space of an enclosed nature where there is a risk of death or serious injury from hazardous substances or dangerous conditions (eg lack of oxygen).

Some confined spaces are fairly easy to identify, eg enclosures with limited

  • openings
  • storage tanks
  • silos
  • reaction vessels
  • enclosed drains
  • sewers

Others may be less obvious, but can be equally dangerous, for example:

  • open-topped chambers
  • vats
  • combustion chambers in furnaces etc
  • ductwork
  • unventilated or poorly ventilated rooms

This course is for personnel that have never received any formal confined space training. It will enable delegates to competently enter, work in and exit from confined space areas.
