Here are some guidelines that can help you to stay safe in confined spaces.
- Before you enter the confined space, you should ensure that you can eliminate or control hazardous elements in the environment.
- Get an instrument to monitor your environment for things like hazardous gases that can’t be detected by smell.
- Make sure that the area is well-ventilated. You can try using forced-air ventilation in confined spaces, because it’s very effective at displacing and diluting the contaminant in a confined environment.
- Ensure that the all personnel using PPE are trained and knowledgeable about proper use of this equipment.
- Reduce the likelihood of additional hazards being introduced by isolating the confined space.
- Be sure that there is an outside attendant who is present and ready and able to monitor safety conditions. They should be ready to assist in the event of an emergency and to request external assistance as well.
- Be prepared to initiate an approved rescue plan with the right equipment in an emergency situation.
- Ensure that the lighting in the confined space is appropriate for a safely visible environment.
- Keep in contact with the workers at all times, so that the workers inside of the confined space can notify people outside of any problems they’re facing or if everything is going well.
