Confined Space regulations 

The confined space regulations are designed to ensure minimum risk and maximum safety where operatives are required to work in a space that has limited ventilation, limited entry and exit points and is not normally intended for continued human occupancy. The dangers of suffocation due to lack of oxygen in the air, or from the ingress of water or free-flowing solid substances, are compounded by the risks of toxic fumes or flammable atmospheres. Too much oxygen can pose a risk as much as too little. Too little, and people find their judgement is impaired, lose consciousness or die. Too much, and normally safe substances become more flammable or explosive.  It is essential that anyone working in a confined space is fully conversant with the confined space regulations, with your own safe practice policies.

At Midlands FRS, we can train your staff, offer guidance as to safe working practices and provide confined space rescue cover when you need it.
