Confined Spaces


Specialising in working in enclosed & confined spaces

Confined Spaces

Working in enclosed and confined spaces creates hazardous conditions with the risk of death or serious injury.

Dangers can arise in confined spaces because of the following issues:
• A lack of oxygen
• Difficult access or egress
• Poisonous gas, fume or vapour
• Fire and explosions (eg from flammable vapours, excess oxygen etc)
• Residues left in tanks, vessels etc, or remaining on internal surfaces
• Hot conditions leading to a dangerous increase in body temperature

 

These spaces include:

• Storage tanks
• Silos
• Reaction vessels
• Enclosed drains
• Sewers

Safe Systems for Confined Spaces


A safe system of work can be provided for surveying, repair services, cleaning and specialist coatings making FG Fegan a one stop shop for refurbishment works to structures within confined spaces.

Other spaces may be less obvious, but can be equally dangerous, for example, un-ventilated or poorly ventilated rooms.
