Confined Spaces - Awareness

Confined Spaces Awareness

Confined spaces are areas that can be hazardous to work in. Sometimes, we can’t avoid them. If you need to work in a confined space, you can follow a variety of methods and practices to safely complete your task. 

Confined spaces are defined as places that are substantially enclosed, though not always entirely, where serious injury can occur from hazardous substances or conditions within the space or nearby, such as a lack of oxygen or sudden flooding.
