What are the common hazards when entering a confined space?

A number of all too common hazards can result in your workplace unexpectedly becoming dangerous in moments.

Some hazards such as liquids or poisonous gases may be present at all times, but others such as lack of oxygen or heat levels will only arise when the work is being carried out.

What legislation is involved with Confined Space Rescue?

The identification and management of working in confined spaces is covered by Confined Space Regulations 1997 and an accompanying Guidance and Approved Code of Practice (HSE L101).

These regulations must be considered before attempting to enter any confined space. A focus of the considerations is finding methods to complete the work without entry and helping to mitigating the risks entirely.
