Every year needless injuries and fatalities occur in confined spaces. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that nearly 100 people die every year in confined space incidents. Sixty-five percent of these occurrences involve atmospheric contamination. What’s even more alarming is that two-thirds of all deaths related to confined space rescue situations happen to the person attempting the rescue. Sometimes these confined spaces seem safe or even harmless. But looks can be deceiving. That’s why you must understand what a confined space is, the hazards that are associated with it and the procedures to maintain your safety and the safety of those around you.
