Confined Space Medicals

A confined space is defined by the HSE as “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).

Due to the nature of confined spaces, it is important to know whether your employee has a medical condition which may put them at increased risk or require adjustments/limitations to ensure that a system of work is in place rendering work safe and without risks to health. Corporate Health have nurses trained in assessing employees for fitness to undertake work in confined spaces.
