Confined Spaces Policy

For the safety and security of everyone involved, our confined space entry policy is to avoid entering a confined space, unless there is no other option.

If entering a confined space is unavoidable, once all risk assessments have been carried out, only our City & Guilds qualified engineers will be permitted to enter the confined space.

All equipment we use is up to date with permits, gas monitors are regularly tested and calibrated, as well completing on site checks before work begins.

What is a confined space?

A Confined Space is an area of an enclosed environment where risk of injury, asphyxiation or even death may occur. In drainage terms, some confined spaces are easy to identify, these might include:

  • Enclosed drains and sewers
  • Tanks
  • Silos

Though some are less easy to identify they can be equally as dangerous and include:

  • Unventilated rooms
  • Unenclosed drains and sewers
  • Ducts
  • Vats

It’s not possible to list every possible confined space. It is also possible that an area could become a confined space after construction has taken place, if you are at all concerned then you should ensure you are working with qualified confined space engineers.
