Safety Tip 2:
Many workplaces include spaces that are considered “confined” because they restrict the activities of employees who must enter, work in, or exit from them. These spaces, such as tanks, manholes, silos, or pipelines, often present increased injury risks.
Here are some confined space safety tips from OSHA:
- Do not enter permit-required confined spaces without being trained and without having a permit to enter.
- Review, understand, and follow employer’s procedures before entering permit-required confined spaces and know-how and when to exit.
- Before entry, identify any physical hazards.
- Before and during entry, test, and monitor for oxygen content, flammability, toxicity, or explosive hazards as necessary.
- Use employer’s fall protection, rescue, air-monitoring, ventilation, lighting, and communication equipment according to entry procedures.
- Maintain contact at all times with a trained attendant either visually, via phone, or by two-way radio. This monitoring system enables the attendant and entry supervisor to order you to evacuate and to alert appropriately trained rescue personnel to rescue entrants when needed.
