It is a requirement of the Confined Space Regulations 1997 Regulation 5 to ensure that suitable and sufficient emergency arrangements are to be in place for the rescue of any person in the event of an emergency. Furthermore, where  appropriate there will also be the need for necessary equipment to enable resuscitation procedures to be carried out. The arrangements must be in place before any person enters the Confined Space.
