Confined Spaces quick reference

Work performed in a confined space is like hospital work - there is no room for error.

The DuraLabel Best Practice Guide to Confined Spaces provides an overall summary of what needs to be done prior to anyone entering a confined space. It's purpose is to provide an overview that will help reduce confined space accidents.

Contrary to common belief, not all small work areas are considered "confined" under OSHA rules. If a confined space poses no danger, it's not considered a permit-required confined space According to OSHA, a permit-required confined space has:

  • A limited or restricted means of entry or exit
  • Is large enough for a person to enter to perform tasks
  • Is not designed or configured for continuous occupancy
  • and has one or more of the following:
    • the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere
    • the potential for engulfing the entrant
    • configured space might cause an entrant to be trapped or asphyxiated by inwardly converging walls or by a floor that slopes downward and tapers to smaller cross section
    • contains any other recognized serious safety or health hazards
