When a confined space contains the potential for mechanical or engulfment hazards, these hazards must be listed on the entry permit. Employees can also be engulfed, drowned or crushed when materials are inadvertently released into a confined space while work is in progress. There are a variety of procedures that may be used to control these types of hazards and the specific procedures relevant to the confined space to be entered must be listed on the entry permit.
Topics include what mechanical and engulfment hazards are, procedures used to help prevent these hazards and the duty of the entry supervisor when dealing with such hazards.
