It is our policy that our Surveyors only enter a confined space when a permit has been issued and after careful consideration that it is safe to do so. Our Surveyors have been advised to remain inside a confined space for as long as it is necessary to carry out the work.
It is the full responsibility of the Owner of the confined space (i.e. ship, shipyard etc.) to ensure that it is safe. Our Surveyors have the right to refuse to enter an unsafe and/or unknown space and have clear instructions in case they are not confident that the space about to enter is safe to report these concerns and not enter until all safety measures are met.
This publication includes Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) concerning confined space entry aiming to keep our Surveyors safe as well as inform interest parties on their obligations. FAQs have been categorized as follow:
- For Owners
- For Surveyors
