New guidance released on working in confined spaces

The Water Industry body Water UK has recently revised its Occasional Guidance Note on Confined Spaces with fresh guidance on safer working. In December 2019 it issued a revised Occasional Guidance Note on the Classification & Management of Confined Space Entries. The aim is continuing to improve safety standards, not only within its own industry, but in the UK as a whole.

Who is this confined spaces guidance for?

This new guidance will help you identify confined spaces, assess risk, and go on to develop safe and suitable systems of work. However the advice is not exhaustive, and cannot predict all possible scenarios. Your organisation will still need your own specific risk assessments, so if this guidance affects you, we can help.
