There are many examples of hazards in confined space entry such as physical and atmospheric. A physical confiend space hazard is when the occupant cannot or cannot easily egress from th econfined space. Atmospheric hazards in confiend spaces include: lack of oxygen, too much oxygen, flammability and explosion hazards and toxic chemicals. All workers and attendants involved in confined space entry must receive specific training by the employer in order to ensure all workers involved are competent and aware of the potential hazards.
Workers fatalities occur every year while working in or around confined spaces. It is estimated that 60% of all fatalities are would be rescuers. Our Confined Space program will provide supervisors, entrants and attending workers with the information needed to understand the potential hazards of working in these spaces and the requirements necessary to control those hazards prior to entry.
