Confined Space Training
Safe Entry and Confined Space Training
Confined spaces have limited means of entry or exit, are large enough to bodily enter, and may contain physical or atmospheric hazards. Examples include storage tanks, process vessels, bins, boilers, vaults, ventilation or exhaust ducts, sewers, tunnels, pipelines, and pits more than 4 feet in depth. Hurricane-related events might introduce hazards or potential hazards into confined spaces. For example, a space might have a potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere due to the presence of decomposing organic matter, to the use of hazardous chemicals in the space, or to the performance of operations in the space, such as welding, cutting, or burning, that may create a hazardous atmosphere. Additional precautions must be taken to make the space safe for entry.
Emergency rescue must be attempted only by individuals who are trained in safe entry and rescue procedures and who have the proper tools and personal protective equipment, such as self-contained breathing apparatuses for entry into atmospheres that are immediately dangerous to life and health.
