The HSE's brief guidance on working safely in confined spaces was updated in January 2013.
This free leaflet (INDG 258) briefly explains the definition of a confined space, the hazards commonly associated with confined spaces (specified risks), an introduction to the legal requirements and points to consider when producing a risk assessment, safe system of work and emergency arrangements.
This latest revision contains minor updates, however the guidance remains the same.
