Next meeting – Wednesday 7th March 2018 – Group Meeting + Topic – Confined Spaces
Meet up at the Sewell Studio from 13:00 for tea and coffee.  The Group Meeting starts at 13:30 with the usual agenda, which includes a review of HSE activities over the past 2 months followed by questions from the audience.  Finally, Ken Smith will present best practice regarding identification of confined spaces and procedures to ensure safe entry and working.   Finish about 15:30.

HSE Definition:  A confined space is a place which is substantially enclosed (though not always entirely), and where serious injury can occur from hazardous substances or conditions within the space or nearby (e.g. lack of oxygen).   So even a small non-ventilated room or service duct may be classed a confined space.  Come along to find out more.  All welcome.

Venue:  Sewell Studio, Geneva Way, off Leads Road, Hull HU7 0DG.
