What are other safety precautions?

Many other situations or hazards may be present in a confined space. Be sure that all hazards are controlled including:

  • Any liquids or free-flowing solids are removed from the confined space to eliminate the risk of drowning or suffocation.
  • All pipes should be physically disconnected or isolation blanks bolted in place.
  • Closing valves is not sufficient.
  • A barrier is present to prevent liquids or free-flowing solids from entering the confined space.
  • The opening for entry into and exit from the confined space must be large enough to allow the passage of a person using protective equipment.
