So what is a Confined Space?

If your first through is a fully enclosed tight Space, with no room to move around... you're only partially right!

Our Space needs to be enclosed but it doesn't have to be fully, it can be partially enclosed something like a trench or a pit or a well.

This alone doesn't classify it as a Confined Space. 

For us to identify our fully or partially enclosed space as confined there has to be the chance of 1 or more of the below forseeable risks:

F - Fire / Explosion

H - Heat Stress

E - Entrapment

A - Asphyxiation

D - Drowning

In this Video Ric goes through Specified Risks to consider when classifying a space as confined.
