A policy is a principle or protocol to guide decisions and achieve desired outcomes. A policy is a statement of intent, and is implemented as a procedure. A company which has confined space working environments should have a confined space policy to engender a safe working culture within its employees and detail a safe code of practice. This will ensure compliance with the Confined Space Regulations 1997 and protect its workers from exposure to the potential hazards that confined spaces possess.
Confined Space Services can produce your company’s confined spaces policy and procedures. Our consultants will then assist you in implementing them at your workplace. A good confined space health and safety policy is imperative to engender and embed a safe working environment and culture.
