Harness provides a range Confined Space Management Services to support clients where working in a confined space is required. The dangers of working in a confined space cannot be underestimated – in fact, when compared with working outside, a confined space can increase the hazards and risks workers face by up to 150 times.
Significant dangers exist when working in a confined space because they are usually not designed to be areas where people work. These spaces often have poor ventilation, which allows hazardous atmospheres to quickly develop, especially if the space is small. Moreover, the hazards faced are not always obvious and may change from one entry into the confined space to the next. Find out more about the dangers of working in a confined space here.
To support clients in navigating the risks, Harness provides consulting support in the form of a number of Confined Space Management Services:
