Confined Space Medical
A confined space is one which is both enclosed, or largely enclosed, and which also has a reasonably foreseeable risk to workers of fire, explosion, loss of consciousness, asphyxiation or drowning.
It is advisable and good practice that employees who work in confined spaces are medically assessed for fitness to work in confined spaces. The purpose of the assessment is to ensure the employee does not have any medical condition which could expose them to a higher degree of risk or result in injury to themselves or other while in confined spaces i.e. heart condition, epilepsy etc.
Our assessments are approximately 45 minutes and include:
- A confidential health questionnaire
- Medical assessment in relation to working in confined spaces
- Blood pressure & pulse
- Musculoskeletal assessment
- Lung funstion test
- Hearing test
- A report will then be created with restrictions and recommendations
