Confined Space

Confined Space

The maintenance and operation of many building systems requires workers to enter confined spaces. Confined space entry presents a number of potential hazards. This program establishes a standard means of inventoryinig and assessing these spaces, as well as providing training for personnel required to enter these spaces.

Before climbing a ladder, check for stability. Make sure the ladder is level and the base cannot slide. Inspect the shoes and rungs for defects, grease or mud to minimize a possible slip. Step ladders should never be used when folded and leaning against a surface. Make sure the step ladder is fully open with the spreader bar down and locked in place.
