Technical Advisory for Working Safely in Confined Spaces - WSH Bulletin

2 Nov 2009

Work in confined spaces can be highly hazardous and can affect large groups of workers in one single incident. In 2008, 10% of workplace fatalities were attributed to confined space incidents. Confined space work was identified by the Ministry of Manpower and the Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Council as a Programme-based Engagement (ProBE) area for 2009.

As of 1 November 2009, a new Workplace Safety and Health (Confined Spaces) Regulations came into effect. To help industry comply with the new Regulations, the WSH Council has engaged industry stakeholders through a WSHC Forum in September, and provided materials for the industry’s use. These are available on the WSHC website at this link.

Further to these initiatives, the WSHC has also developed a Technical Advisory (TA) for working safely in confined spaces. The TA will provide more information on how to manage confined spaces related hazards as well as emergency and rescue procedures for the rescue team.
