Code of Practice for Working in Confined Spaces

Confined Spaces COP Cover
This code of practice is intended to provide practical guidance on safe work in confined spaces and is operational from 1st May 2017.

Confined spaces are significantly more hazardous than normal workplaces and the hazards involved are always exacerbated by the enclosed nature of the confined space. A seemingly insignificant error or oversight while working in a confined space can result in a tragic accident.
