Confined Space - Tunnel Entry and Associated Emergency.
Air quality testing: The air within the confined space should be tested from outside of the confined space before entry into the confined space. Care should be taken to ensure that air is tested throughout the confined space - side-to-side and top to bottom. Continuous monitoring should be considered in situations where a worker is in a space where atmospheric conditions have the potential to.

The Confined Space Entry course is a blended learning course, which provides learners with a one-hour eLearning course that delivers and assesses the fundamental, underpinning knowledge relating to entry of a confined space. This is then further supported by a one-day practical training session, which can be conducted in a training facility or in the workplace e.g. an onshore or offshore.
The contractor is to record the results of the testing in the Confined Space Entry Permit. 3.5.5. Purging of a confined s. pace. If the confined space atmosphere is unsafe, the contractor is to ensure that the confined space is cleared of all contaminants by purging. This is done by using an inert gas, such as nitrogen, to clear flammable gases or vapours before work in the 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). Confined spaces legislation. Related industries. A number of people are killed or seriously injured in the UK each year in confined spaces. These occur across a wide range of.
Confined Space Entry Permit: - Is a permit form authorizing entry and work in a confined space; which states the type of work, air test results, entry requirements, and protective measures. This document is signed by an Entry Supervisor and is required to be posted at the entrance of the space during such work. Contaminant: - Any organic or inorganic substance, dust, fume, mist, vapor, or gas.
