Gas Safety in Confined Spaces

A confined space is any space large enough for someone to enter and perform assigned work, which has limited means of entry or exit, and which is not designed for continuous worker occupancy. This covers just about every industry, including utilities, construction, hydrocarbon exploration and processing, petrochemicals, marine, agriculture, food processing and brewing, as well as the emergency services.

Employers must assess the risks these workplaces pose to their employees and endeavour to prevent them.  In most cases, both the assessment and the safe working system will require testing of the atmosphere with gas detection Continue reading...
