Confined space entry must be approached with a professional attitude and a methodical system designed to prevent situations from escalating into a disaster. The National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) found that in more than 50% of confined space accidents, the rescuer becomes the victim. NIOSH also found that very few organizations provided written procedures. Failure to closely follow specific rules, regulations and confined space safety standards can guarantee serious injury or even death. This program is designed to provide the viewer with safety basics in confined space entry.
Topics discussed in this safety video include: definition of confined space, oxygen deficiency, flammable or explosive gases, toxic gases and vapors, atmospheric hazard, engulfment hazard, configuration hazard, permit system of a written program and procedure, procedures to take into account, confined space supervisor/observer and emergency standby, proper techniques involved with confined space entry, confined space emergencies, training required for members of the rescue team, and PPE.
