GWP Confined Space With Form   Power Point  Exl.


Confined Space Check List / CPR Instructions

What exactly is a confined space?

• “Confined space” means a space that:
Is large enough and so configured that an eloyee can bodily enter and perform assigned work and;
Has limited or restricted means for entry or exit (for example, tanks, vessels, silos, hoppers) and; Is not designed for continuous human occupancy.

The Dangers of Confined Spaces Spaces that;
Contain or have the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere.
_Contains material that has the potential for engulfing an entrant.

Has an internal configuration such that an entrant could be trapped or asphyxiated by inwardly converging walls or by a floor
which slopes downward and tapers to a narrower cross-section. _ Contains any other recognized serious safety or health hazard.

The Facts
_ Enclosed and confined spaces can be very dangerous.
_ Not all hazards are easily recognized.
_ Untrained personnel should never enter these spaces.
You have entered a space when any part of your body
crosses the plane of the opening.
_ Space must be tested and permits issued before anyone enters
All energy sources to the space must be isolated (locked and tagged out)
prior to entry
No form of pressure vessels such as cylinders must be stored in a confined space
Adequate ventilation must be provided as well as constant monitoring of entrants

Common types of confined spaces include tanks, silos, pipelines, sewers, storage bins, drain tunnels, and vaults. These are widespread in many industries,
and also in non-industrial workplaces such as health care, education, retail and services.

Confined spaces can be deceptively dangerous. It is even more tragic that over 60% of confined space worker deaths occur to would-be
rescuers who attempt to save a worker who initially succumbs”,

Many workplaces contain spaces that are considered "confined"
because their configurations hinder the activities of employees who must enter, work in, and exit them. A confined space has limited or restricted means for entry or exit, and it is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. Confined spaces include, but are not limited to underground vaults, tanks, storage bins, manholes, pits, silos, process vessels, and pipelines. OSHA uses the term "permit-required confined space" (permit space) to describe a confined space that has one or more of the following characteristics: contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere; contains a material that has the potential to engulf an entrant; has walls that converge inward or floors that slope downward and taper into a smaller area which could trap or asphyxiate an entrant; or contains any other recognized safety or health hazard, such as unguarded machinery, exposed live wires, or heat stress.
