Operatives – Confined Space Utilities.
First Aid and Resuscitation
All persons who enter confined spaces or act as a “Top Attendant” must be suitably trained in emergency procedures, including any appropriate first aid and artificial resuscitation.
When working/rescue breathing apparatus is provided/used a suitable means of resuscitation, as determined within the risk assessment, must be provided and the site team must include a suitably trained qualified First Aider.
The First Aider must not be part of the team who enters the confined space, nor may he/she be the “Top Attendant” controlling the activity.
Where risk assessment identifies the possibility that a significant abnormal condition may develop, specialist first aid facilities and competence may be required.
If resuscitation is likely to be attempted within the Confined Space when breathing apparatus is being used, or if a person rendering assistance might be placed at risk from secondary inhalation of toxic gas during mouth-to-mouth, then the means of resuscitation must include a mechanical device.
The first aider must have received specialist training in the use of any specific resuscitation equipment provided.
