Stuart Halliday, a CMIOSH-approved HSE professional, works with the Mintra team to advise on our health and safety courses and ensure that our course content is both compliant with industry standards and relevant to our end users.
Here, he gives us some of his key takeaways to consider when involved in confined space entry (CSE).
Campaigns that continue to highlight the hazards and consequences of CSE operations are always a good reminder. Like all things HSE-related, you have to continue to recycle through all the big safety topics and, in my opinion, this is certainly one. This is why all major operators and service providers have CSE as one of their life-saving rules.
Mintra's CSE course provides an excellent introduction/awareness to working within a confined space and also holds great value in being used as a refresher or as part of an induction process prior to any large maintenance campaign where there are significant amounts of CSE work planned.
The HSE enforcement site provides examples of where things have gone wrong in previous CSE exercises, and provides an excellent resource for additional learning http://www.hse.gov.uk/enforce/index.htm
