7 Definitions of Confined Space Confined spaces are subdivided into two groups1. Confined SpaceIs large enough and so configured that an employee can bodily enter and perform assigned work; andHas limited or restricted means for entry or exit; andIs not designed for continuousemployee occupancy
8 Permit Required Confined Space A permit required space must meet the definition of a confined space plus one of the following:*Contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphereContains a material that has the potential for engulfing an entrantHas an internal configuration such that an entrant could be trapped or asphyxiated by inwardly converging walls, or a floor which slopes and tapers to a smaller cross section orContains any other recognized serious safety or health hazard

20 Types of Confined Space Hazards Confined space hazards are basically grouped into six groupsAtmospheric hazardsPhysical hazardsEngulfment hazardsCorrosive hazardsBiological hazardsOther hazards
21 Confined space Awareness (SFD Web Site) VIDEOSConfined space Awareness (SFD Web Site)
22 Effects of Hazardous Atmospheres Suffocation*65% of fatalities occurring in confined spaces are a result of hazardous atmospheres *Poisoning *Explosion/Fire *
23 Hazardous AtmosphereAn atmosphere which exposes employees to a risk or death, incapacitation, injury or acute illness from one or more of the following causesO2 level below 19.5% or above 23.5%Flammable gas or vapor in excess of 10% of L.E.L.Airborne combustible dust at a concentration that obscures vision at 5 feet or lessAny immediately dangerous to life or health (IDLH) atmosphere
24 Target Gases and Effects Oxygen*Must be between 19.5% and 23.5% by volume for atmosphere to be considered safe*Above 23.5% by volume the environment becomes unstable and prone to flash fires or explosionBelow 16% physical effects will become apparentMethaneColorlessOdorlessNon-toxicAsphyxiate (displaces O2)Lighter than air*Explosive range (5% to 15%)
25 Target Gases and Effects Carbon Monoxide*ColorlessOdorlessToxicAsphyxiant (displaces O2)Vapor density = to airExplosive range (12.5% to 74.2%)
26 Target Gases and Effects Hydrogen Sulfide*ColorlessSmell like rotten eggsToxicVapor density is 1.89Explosive range (4% to 44%)Common in sewage facilitiesDiminishes your sensitivity to smellSulfur dioxidePungentIrritating gas1-10 ppm exposure causes respiratory and pulse rate increase and decrease in depth of respirationVapor density is 2.26Non-flammable
27 Target Gases and Effects Carbon dioxideColorlessOdorlessNon-combustible gasToxicExposure symptomsHeadacheDizzinessRestlessnessVapor density is 1.53
28 Atmospheric Monitors Types of air monitors/alarms Single gas monitors Will monitor only one preset gasMultiple gas monitorsWill monitor multiple preset gases1) Monitors that sense four (4) gases at once are commonly used in confined space operations referred to as four (4) in one (1) monitors
29 Monitoring Operations Monitoring should be done in the following order every timeOxygen content (first)*Flammable gases/vapors (second)*Potential toxic contaminants (third)*Testing should be done prior to lifting person hole coversTo get the most accurate readingTo eliminate potential explosionsTesting should be done at all levels of the confined spaceStratification of gases may occur due to vapor density of gases varyTesting must continue periodicallyResults of monitoring must be loggedAn entry permit as well as data log of monitor if equipped
30 Physical Hazards Grinding equipment* Agitators Mulching equipment* Drive shaftsGears and other moving equipmentSteam or steam fittingsElectrocutionFalling objects*
31 Engulfment Hazards Material involved in engulfment incidents* GrainsSandGravelCementClaySawdustLiquidsCauses of engulfment incidentsWalking on unstable material that has void spaces belowBridging*Improper or lack of use of safety/retrieval linesOverhead flow of particulate matter or liquids activated inadvertently
32 Case StudyOn June 6, 1998, a 56 year-old worker died when he was engulfed by sand in a hopper at a concrete pipe manufacturing company. His job as a "material man" was to direct the flow of sand and gravel from storage bins to hoppers housed in a shed on top of the plant. Since there was only one conveyor that moved sand and gravel from storage bins to the shed, the material man had to enter the shed and manually operate a lever that controlled the flow of sand or gravel into the correct hopper. He entered the 17 foot deep hopper filled with sand, perhaps by falling, was engulfed, and suffocated.
33 Case StudyA 23-year-old mill operator and a 20-year-old maintenance technician were killed when they were engulfed in corn in a 6,000 bushel cone bottom gravity feed bin at a feedlot. The two individuals had been "knocking down" soy bean meal in a gravity feed bin next to the corn bin prior to the incident. For some reason, after their work in the soy bean meal bin they went to the corn bin and both individuals became engulfed in cracked corn. Both of these bins were active, flowing soy bean meal and cracked corn into a "clam" approximately once every five to ten minutes. The "clam" was then emptied into feed trucks. When the corn flowed from the bin, this pulled the victims under the corn. When others at the feedlot realized the two were trapped in the corn, they cut openings in the bottom of the bin to release the corn and rescue the victims. Both individuals died from suffocation.
