The HSE is currently consulting on proposed changes to the Approved Code of Practice L101, associated with the Confined Space Regulations 1997.
This revision follows the agreement to review such documents identified by Professor Ragnar Löfstedt.
The amends proposed are designed to bring the document up to date with regulatory and other changes and to make the understanding and use of the document easier, particularly with clarifying the definition of a confined space The amendments also accommodate suggestions made in the earlier consultation in September 2012.
The 6 week consultation ends on September 30th and those who work in confined spaces, those who employ or train such people and those that represent them are asked to have their say on the proposed changes.
View the proposed changes and leave your feedback online via the HSE website.
