Many work places contain spaces that are considered “confined” because their configuration shinder the activities of employees who mustenter, workin, and exit them. A confined space has limited or restricted means for entry or exit, and it is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. Confined spaces include, but are not limited to underground vaults, tanks, storage bins, manholes, pits, silos, process vessels, and pipe lines. OSHA uses the term “permit – required confined space” (permit space) to describe a confined space that has one or more of the following characteristics : contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere ; contains a material that has the potential to engulf an entrant ; has walls that converge inward or floors that slope down ward and taper into a smaller area which could trap or asphyxiate an entrant; or contains any other recognized safety or health hazard, such as unguarded machinery, exposed live wires, or heat stress.
