Although the definition of a confined space varies in our industry it is generally recognized as a space that:
– has 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 the potential for a significant hazard to be present.
Examples of, but not limited to, confined spaces are lift shafts, airconditioning vents, silos and large storage tanks.
