Following the Confined Spaces Regulations 1997 and the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, UK employers are required, by law, to ensure their business abides by the confined spaces regulations. Under the regulations, the employer is responsible for making sure appropriate measures have been taken to prevent risks occurring whilst employees are carrying out work in confined spaces. In the event that the employer fails to abide by the confined space regulations, legal action will be taken. Therefore, it is essential that your business ensures it is in compliance with the confined space regulations.

Abiding by the Confined Space Regulations 1997

Where possible, work in confined spaces should be avoided. However, when this is not possible, employers have a legal duty to ensure the following:

  • A confined space risk assessment has been conducted by a competent person
  • An assessment of the materials and tools used for work has taken place
  • The individual is competent to carry out the work
  • A safe system of work is in place
  • Adequate emergency arrangements are in place prior to work starting.
  • To ensure your business is abiding by the confined space regulations, it is crucial that a competent individual with skills and knowledge of work in confined spaces, conducts an assessment of any work which will take place in a confined space.
