We have two questions to help you identify if you have a ‘confined space’ and if you, and your team, require training.
Is the space fully or partially enclosed? AND, Does it have any of the 5 specified risks?
If you’re interested in any of our courses, then please get in touch.
If you have answered ‘YES’ to both of those questions, your space is confined, and you and your team require Confined Space Training.
We provide a number of different level confined space courses, which are split into a number of categories:

If you answered ‘NO’ to the two questions, you may still need to adopt some good practices when working in your space.
Despite your answer – you need to ask the “what if…?” question(s).
If the team need immediate help, you may need to plan, train and equip your personnel to rescue their colleagues in an emergency.
Element Safety can provide everything you need to comply with the regulations and keep you, and your team, safe.
A confined space can be any place of an enclosed nature where there is a risk of death or serious injury from hazardous substances or dangerous conditions.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 state:
“You must carry out a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risk for all work activities for the purpose of deciding what measures are necessary for safety”.
If the assessment identifies there is a risk of death or serious injury resulting from work in a confined space, then you must adhere to the Confined Space Regulations 1997. These regulations state that you should try to avoid entry to the confined space, however,
“If entry to a confined space is unavoidable, follow a safe system of work; and put in place adequate emergency arrangements before the work starts”.
The team at Element Safety are here to support you with your confined space training needs. Please feel free to get in touch with us if you would like to discuss your requirements or follow the links on the attached pages to allow us to get in touch with you.
