Some confined spaces are obvious, others aren't so easy to spot...
It’s basically down to our old friend the risk assessment, and whilst some are obvious, most are not.
An enclosed nature may not always be apparent, it may only be in one necessary location, and may only be intermittent.
Could toxic fumes, gases or vapours be present or flow in to the confined space or be created during the works?
These gases may include flammable substances or too much oxygen.
Any of these could indicate a confined space. There are procedures you must put in place under the Health & Safety at Work etc Act 1974
