Consultation on Draft Approved Code of Practice (ACOP): Safe Work in Confined Spaces


<1 min

Posted on 31 Aug 2014

This consultative document seeks views on the revised version of the Approved Code of Practice (L101) relating to the Confined Spaces Regulations 1997. This revision follows the agreement to review such documents identified by Professor Ragnar Löfstedt.

The proposed amendments 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 proposed amendments will be of interest to those involved in work within confined spaces, those who employ or train such people and those that represent them.

This consultation began on 20 August and ends on 30 September 2014. The consultation document can be found on the HSE website.
