All Jet & Drain operatives are fully Confined space trained. However, our confined space policy is to avoid entering a confined space unless there is no other option, and all avenues have been taken before entry. When confined space is unavoidable, risk assessments will have to be completed and followed before entry.
All gas monitors will need to be calibrated, escape sets and permits will need to checked and followed, and full site survey.
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 area or nearby (e.g. lack of oxygen).
If you cannot avoid entering into a confined space, make sure you have a safe system for working inside the area. Use the results of your risk assessment to help identify the precautions you need to take to reduce the risk of injury. These will depend on the nature of the confined space, the associated risk and the work involved.
Make sure that the safe system of work, including the precautions identified, is developed and put into practice. Everyone involved will need to be properly trained and instructed to make sure they know what to do and how to do it safely.
