Introduction:

Safely dealing with a confined space entry can be a challenging task. The scope of activities included in any confined space entry is incredibly broad, ranging from pre-entry evaluation of the space and atmospheric testing to lockout / tagout and rescue procedures.

The number of fatalities involving confined spaces is staggering, especially when considering that in over 60% of confined space accidents, the would-be rescuers contribute to the fatality count.

Employers must ensure that confined space entry is conducted in a safe and legally compliant manner. A significant amount of work is required to ensure that all applicable requirements are satisfied.
