Why do I need Confined space training?

Confined spaces are potential hazards to workers that are required to enter them, confined space training can assist in recognising the dangers and is a key form of defence from disaster

What makes working in a confined space dangerous?

There’s a lot more to defining a confined space than many people may initially think and identification is an essential part of ensuring a safe working environment. It’s easy to assume that a confined space is a small, enclosed area, however, a confined space can include a variety of environments such as large chambers, tunnels or tanks; any space that is substantially enclosed could present a risk, whatever its size.

The Specified Risks identified in the Confined Spaces Regulations 1997 are:

  • Serious injury arising from a fire, explosion or excess of oxygen
  • Loss of consciousness arising from an increase in body temperature
  • Loss of consciousness or asphyxiation arising from gas, fume, vapour or the lack of oxygen
  • Drowning arising from an increase in the level of liquid
  • Asphyxiation arising from a free flowing solid or the inability to reach a respirable environment due to entrapment by a free flowing solid

Under this definition, if an area is substantially enclosed and also presents a reasonably foreseeable risk of one or more of the specified risks, then it should be defined as a confined space.

What responsibility do I have as a business?

Highlighted in the confined space regulations 1997 legislation, every business has a duty of care to its employees to keep them safe while at work, and this is especially important when confined space working is required.

A key requirement of the confined space regulations 1997 is that employers must find a practical method of completing confined space works without the need of entry. When this is not possible, action needs to be taken to ensure a safe system for work to be carried out. Through a full risk assessment, an employer is then able to make an informed decision on what specific training, PPE and safety equipment will be needed to keep employees safe.

How can I protect my staff?

The saying ‘failing to prepare is preparing to fail’ is pertinent to confined space working as advanced planning is crucial. Employers must adequately protect their staff and provide them with the correct knowledge and tools to ensure that they return home safely at the end of each day. The most effective way of ensuring correct knowledge of working safely within a confined space is through receiving the appropriate confined space training.

For those working in confined space environments, there a many hazards which can lead to catastrophic implications and in some cases, fatalities. This is why it is imperative that businesses ensure that the correct precautions are taken in making sure that staff not only understand what danger to look out for, but are able to work safely within their environment and are able to quickly respond to any dangerous situations that may arise. Receiving proper confined space training from phoenix can help equip employees with these skills. Phoenix safety offers training single and 3 day confined space training courses Uk wide, including; Liverpool, Manchester and the wider NorthWest of England, Leeds, Glasgow, Bristol and Cardiff.

Avoid Tragedy With Confined Space Training

Without proper confined space training, few workplace areas present as many potentially serious hazards as a confined space

Four minutes is all it takes for a confined space “rescue” to turn into a “body retrieval” exercise. After only four minutes in a hazardous environment present in a confined space, it highly is likely that a worker who has not received appropriate confined space training, who is not wearing a respirator will experience brain damage or death, Confined space training can protect workers from this tragedy.

Confined spaces create the perfect conditions for a hazardous atmosphere. Some seem obvious – a tank that held solvents, railroad cars used to transport hazardous chemicals, sewers – while others are less so: a deep swimming pool with six inches of water and algae at the bottom, a drainage shaft that is not particularly deep and is not fully enclosed may not contain enough oxygen to support life and be lethal to workers.

Confined space training is not only a legal requirement, It saves lives

Correct training and preparation prior to working within a confined space is an absolute necessity to ensure a safe working environment.  At Phoenix safety, we value the well being of workers exposed to confined spaces.
