Safety & Training Short: Confined Spaces - Permit Required Confined SpacesJune 22, 2020Protect yourself in and around confined spaces.
A confined space is a working area with limited openings for entry or exit, large enough for entering and working, and not designated for continuous occupancy. Examples of confined spaces include tanks, storage bins, underground vaults, pits, manholes, silos, and pipelines.
Permits are required to enter confined spaces that:
- May contain a hazardous or potentially hazardous atmosphere
- Contain materials which can engulf an entrant
- Contain walls that converge inward or floors that slope downward and taper into a smaller area which may trap or asphyxiate an entrant
- May contain other serious physical hazards such as unguarded machines or exposed live electrical wires
