Why is Confined Space Training Important?

As you undoubtedly already know, working in confined spaces carries inherent risks. Injury, illness and even death are possible outcomes of poor confined space training, among many more hazards, your employees may face. This is why it is crucial that quality confined space training is given to anyone working in these parameters and others on-site who may be tasked with rescuing or assisting trapped colleagues.

Hazards of Working in a Confined Space

  • Poor visibility
  • Restricted access and exit
  • Restricted movement
  • Risk of falling objects
  • Loose and unstable materials
  • Trip and fall hazards
  • Noise
  • Risk of drowning

As an employer, it is your legal responsibility to protect any employees whose role requires them to work in confined spaces. This includes carrying out a proper risk assessment and ensuring that employees are trained in carrying out emergency procedures. Likewise, employees are responsible for ensuring that all measures and procedures are appropriately adhered to when working in a confined space.

The best way to ensure that all employees on your site are working on the latest health and safety procedures is to keep them up to date with an appropriate confined space course, as provided by NATAS.
