Confined Space - Plan and Prepare

What is a confined space?

  • Confined space workers

    Confined spaces present some of the most challenging environments for any health and safety professionals. From potentially toxic atmospheres, to physically hazardous conditions such as extreme temperatures, unstable materials, or the potential for falls, confined spaces often present unseen challenges. Creating and maintaining a safe jobsite with Confined Spaces depends on having correct, current information.

    Confined Spaces are areas that are: ​
     

    • Large enough for workers to enter and perform certain jobs AND​
    • Limited or restricted means for entry or exit AND
    • Not designed for continuous occupancy (not necessarily designed for people)

Not sure where to start?
