Confined Space Medical 

A confined space refers to a space which is both enclosed, or largely enclosed, with reasonably foreseeable risks of fire, explosion, loss of consciousness, asphyxiation or drowning to the worker. Entering or working in a confined space can be hazardous and may impose extra physiological demands, therefore workers in this environment require a specialised medical to determine suitability to work in confined spaces.

 

Dangers Can Arise in Confined Spaces due to:

  • Lack of oxygen
  • The build-up of poisonous gas, fume or vapour
  • Liquids and solids which can suddenly fill the space or release gas into it when disturbed
  • Fire and explosions
  • High dust levels
  • Hot conditions
