Confined Space Entry and EEBA Use

Confined spaces can be deadly. In 1997 the regulations were introduced in order to control industry and the self-employed. By law, anyone involved with entering, controlling or supervising people involved with Confined Space work must have received training. A Confined Space is any space including chamber, vessel, tank, silo, pit or other similar space that is largely enclosed (not always entirely) that contains a foreseeable specified risk of serious injury.
