The confined spaces code of practice provides practical guidance on how persons can meet the requirements of the National model regulations 2012. The aim of the Regulations is to protect people against the risks entry and work in confined spaces can pose to their health and safety at work.
The code of practice applies to all employers and employees as defined under section 4 of the Act and all designers, manufacturers, importers and suppliers to workplaces of plant which may include confined spaces. It also applies to self-employed persons who are required to comply with Part 3 of the Regulations as if they were an employer.
