Over the years, work in confined spaces resulted in several fatalities and injuries to workers across a range of industries. This led to the introduction of the Confined Space Regulations 1997, designed to remove the risk of fatalities to persons who may need to work in such spaces. However, sadly, despite these regulations, around 15 people in the UK are still killed in confined spaces incidents each year. These deaths occur either because of an inability to recognise the confined space and its dangers, ill-conceived rescue attempts or inadequate systems for safe working.
