The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require employers and self-employed people to carry out a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks for all work activities for the purpose of deciding what measures are necessary for safety. For work in confined spaces this means identifying the hazards present, assessing the risks and determining what precautions to take.
Some of the key duties under the Confined Space Regulations 1997 are too follow a safe system of work; and put in place adequate emergency arrangements before the work starts. Compliance with legislation is achieved by producing the correct risk management documentation and suitable and sufficient employee safety briefings.
