Safety is essential – work to the code!

Do you know the definition of a confined space?

A confined space is a place which is substantially enclosed (though not always entirely), and where serious injury can occur from hazardous substances or conditions within the space or nearby.

A number of people are killed or seriously injured in the UK each year in confined spaces.

Download a free copy of our ‘Safe work in confined spaces‘ publication, which explains the definition, gives examples and helps you put precautions in place for work to be carried out safely.

You can also purchase a hard copy at the HSE Books website.
