Do You Need a Fit For Work Certificate to be able in a Confined Space? We Offer Full Safety Critical Medicals – Onsite or at Our Clinic.
We provide Safety Critical medicals with a certificate of medical fitness that comply with National standards (Health & Safety at Work Act 1974).
The medical demonstrates that you reach the required level of medical standard to undertake safety critical tasks. Under Health and safety legislation employers have a duty of care to prevent injury & ill health to employees/ workers.
The Confined Space Regulations 1997 apply where the assessment identifies risks of serious injury. If possible, companies should avoid carrying out tasks in a confined space. Where this is inconceivable, you must assess the risks and plan how to control those risks.
What is defined as 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 (e.g. lack of oxygen). The space itself may be small and restrictive for it could be large such as a grain storage silo.
Dangers of Working in a Confined Space Can Arise due to:
- Liquids and solids which can suddenly fill the space or release gas into it when disturbed.
- Fire and explosions.
- Lack of oxygen.
- High dust levels.
- The build-up of poisonous gas, fume or vapour.
- Hot conditions.
