DEFINING CONFINED SPACES AND ASSESSING RISK POTENTIAL

Confined spaces are defined by the Ontario Ministry of Labour as “a fully or partially enclosed space that is not both designed and constructed for continuous human occupancy” with the potential for risk “because of its construction, location or contents … or work that is done in it.”

Confined spaces include:

  • Tunnels
  • Tanks & Silos
  • Wells
  • Manholes
  • Culverts & Open Ditches

… and many other spaces that are part of a variety of jobs and work sites. Confined spaces are thus a key focus of safety management. Your organization has a legal and ethical responsibility to identify the confined spaces on your premises or job sites; establish confined space entry management procedures; train all staff who may be involved with confined spaces; and establish safety prevention and emergency response measures.

WHY & HOW TO CONDUCT CONFINED SPACE ENTRY MANAGEMENT

Confined spaces carrying a risk of the following:

  • Fire (burns, smoke inhalation)
  • Asphyxiation
  • Chemical burns
  • Safety hazards (slips, falls, engulfment, loss of limb)
  • Inhaling and/or exposure to contaminates & hazardous materials, etc.

Making matters worse is the difficulty to access a confined space should rescue become necessary. That’s why it is vital to have an effective confined space entry management program in place.

We’ll conduct a site visit to identify all confined spaces, then establish a series of safety measures that include assessment, testing, training, facility maintenance & improvement, prevention plans and emergency response.
