- Avoiding entry if it is practicable to do so
- Identifying the hazards and assessing the risks
- Establishing a safety system of work
- Establishing emergency arrangements
The film shows how to avoid costly accidents by carrying out a risk assessment and implementing control measures. It describes permit to work systems to help minimise risks and outlines the elements of training for everyone involved in confined spaces operations.
The programme ends by reminding viewers what they should never do and what they should always do when working in confined spaces. It emphasises that failure to comply with the regulations not only endangers the persons involved but can lead to criminal prosecution.
