Confined Space Overview
Many workplaces contain spaces that are considered “confined” because their configurations hinder the activities of any employee that must enter, work in, and exit them. The hazards encountered and associated with entering and working in confined spaces are capable of causing bodily injury, illness, and death to the worker. That’s because the hazards tend to be misunderstood or underestimated. And many confined spaces fatalities involve not one, but two, victims: the worker and the rescuer.
