What is confined space training?

Every year a number of people lose their lives or are seriously injured due to working in confined spaces and its usually due to them being unaware of the dangers, poorly training or not having the correct safety equipment. Confined space courses are designed to help people understand more about safe work practices, suitable control measures and the law regarding to staying safe at work.

A confined space is defined as any area including a chamber, vessel, tank, silo, pit or other similar space that is largely enclosed and is classified as a foreseeable specified risk of serious injury. A risk can be any of the following:

  • Fire or explosion causing serious injury
  • Gas, fume, vapour or lack of oxygen causing loss of consciousness
  • Increase in body temperature causing loss of consciousness
  • Increase in the level of liquid causing drowning
  • Free flowing solids causing asphyxiation

Confined Space Regulations

Confined spaces can be deadly and in 1997 regulations were introduced to control the industry and the self-employed. It’s now the law that if you’re involved with entering, controlling or supervising people involved with confined space work, you must have receive training. Failure to comply with the 1997 Confined Space Regulations can result in prosecution.
With some people being killed or seriously injured in the UK every year, this also includes a large number of people trying rescue others without sufficient equipment or training.

The Confined Space Regulations state the following:

  • Avoid entry to confined spaces (for example, working from outside
  • If entry to a confined space is unavoidable, follow a safe system of work
  • Put in place adequate emergency arrangements before the work starts

At REAX we’re fully compliant with current legislation and accredited by the following governing bodies; City & Guilds, ARQIVA and Qualsafe.
