Confined Space Entry

Get the help of professionals

Access to confined spaces

Entering confined spaces is incredibly dangerous and can be deadly.

Although some drainage issues can be easily dealt with through non-disruptive services, there are some problems that will require access to confined spaces to solve the issue at hand.

It is never recommended that you attempt to make changes or fixes to your drainage systems in confined areas without the help and guidance of professionals.

20+ years experience

Experience in confined spaces

Here at Hampshire Drainage, we are experienced in confined space entry and look to ensure that entry is avoided where possible.

Where necessary, we are able to service drains in even the smallest of spaces with unrivalled professionalism and efficiency.

Through risk assessment, compliance, and in-depth training, our engineers are equipped with everything they need to enter confined spaces and get the job done safely.

Examples of confined space

Confined spaces are often easy to identify, but others can be less obvious but equally – if not more – dangerous.

Other areas may also only be classed as ‘confined’ when work is being carried out, so it is not possible to provide a list of all confined space examples.

  • Storage tanks
  • Silos
  • Drains
  • Unventilated spaces
  • Vats
  • Combustion chambers
  • Areas where oxygen is limited

Domestic & commercial work

Our confined space entry drain services

We have all the permits, training, and PPE equipment in place for drain confined space entry. This means we are able to work with domestic and commercial properties or on behalf of local authorities to fix and work within confined areas.

Larger drainage blockages or issues may require someone to climb into the drain or space itself to remedy the problem. This work can only be carried out by certified professionals.

There are several services we can provide to determine whether an entry is required. CCTV drain surveys, for example, can help engineers identify issues further down in the pipework without having to enter.

High-definition imagery will allow them to decide the best course of action – with entry being the last resort.


Our process

Precautionary steps

In order to ensure the safety of our staff, we always carry out the precautionary steps prior to starting any confined space entry work. These extensive checks and procedures allow us to maintain a high level of professionalism and safety while on site. Without these policies in place, staff and the public could be put at risk. All our engineers are trained and tested on the above procedures prior to starting work.

  • Carrying out risk assessments and identifying potential hazards
  • Practicing isolation procedures to ensure the confined space is isolated from any other risks
  • Conducting atmospheric evaluations to ensure the safety of staff
  • Planning the appropriate PPE for the job
  • Calibrating and testing all equipment prior to each project.
  • Obtaining an entry permit for the space
  • Setting up and practicing rescue procedures in case of emergency
  • Ensuring the site is equipped with a first aider at all times
