A confined space is defined as any space that is large enough to enter and perform work, has limited or restricted means of entry or exit and is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA, requires employers to protect employees in general industry from the hazards of entry into permit-required confined spaces by developing a permit-required confined space program. Examples of confined spaces include manholes, tanks, vessels and pits.
Topics include the confined space entry team and their duties, what defines a confined space and what requirements are put into place by OSHA.
