14 april: Maintenance Webinar Confined Spaces

Working safely in confined spaces

A confined space is a work location that is difficult to enter and is poorly ventilated. It is cramped, often dark, and there are few possibilities of escape. There is often insufficient oxygen, or hazardous substances that are released during the work. Examples of work that are carried out in these spaces include maintenance and cleaning work, repairs and inspections.

Every year a number of people are killed or seriously injured due to working in confined spaces, often because they are unaware of the dangers, poorly trained or the correct safety arrangements have not been put in place.

Learning lessons during this (international) Maintenance Webinar;

  • Work permit
  • Instruments

Nevertheless, both standards place an affirmative duty on the employer to train employees who enter confined and enclosed spaces, during construction or maintenance works, on the hazards involved, precautions to take and protective and emergency equipment needed. Standards may be of use to contractors as a means of planned activities general management, assessing and dealing with hazards and selecting proper personal protective equipment (PPE) and effectiveness emergency procedure and equipment.
