Subtitles & Transitions FOR EXAMPLE…
7©2006 TEEX Categorizing Work Space YES Space large enough to enter and Limited or restricted entry or exit and Not designed for continuous worker occupancy. Not a Confined Space YES Confined Space Permit- Required Confined Space Non Permit- Required Space NO Hazardous Atmosphere or Engulfment Hazard or Configuration Hazard or Any other recognized serious hazard
Permit-Required Confined Spaces
9©2006 TEEX Applicable regulations 29 CFR General industry only – does not apply to construction operations
10©2006 TEEX (b) Definitions Entry Passing through opening (any part of entrant’s body breaks its plane) Includes ensuing work activities
11©2006 TEEX (b) Definitions Hazardous Atmosphere 1.Flammable gas, vapor, or mist in excess of 10% of its LFL 2.Airborne dust at a concentration that meets or exceeds its LFL (Rule of thumb: vision at <5’) 3.Oxygen 23.5% 4.Atmospheric concentrations of substances above PEL 5.Other atmospheric conditions: IDLH.
12©2006 TEEX (b) Definitions Engulfment The surrounding & effective capture of a person by a liquid or finely divided (flammable) solid substance that can: Be aspirated to cause death by filling or plugging the respiratory system Exert enough force on the body to cause death by strangulation, constriction, or crushing.
13©2006 TEEX Engulfment Hazards Loose, granular materials stored in bins and hoppers - grain, sand, coal, etc. Crusting and bridging below a worker Flooding of confined space Water or sewage flow
14©2006 TEEX (b) Definitions Configuration Hazard Has an internal configuration such that an entrant could be trapped or asphyxiated By inwardly converging walls, or By a floor which slopes downward & tapers to a smaller cross-section
15©2006 TEEX Hazards of Confined Spaces Oxygen Deficient Atmospheres Oxygen Enriched Atmospheres Flammable Atmospheres Toxic Atmospheres Temperature Extremes Engulfment Hazards Equipment (machinery, electrical)
16©2006 TEEX Other Hazards Noise Amplified due to acoustics within the space Damages hearing; affect communication Slick / Wet Surfaces Slips and falls Increased chance of electric shock Falling Objects Topside openings expose workers inside confined space to falling objects
17©2006 TEEX Oxygen Deficient Atmospheres 19.5 %Minimum acceptable oxygen level %Decreased ability to work strenuously. Impaired coordination. Early symptoms %Respiration increases. Poor judgment %Respiration increases. Lips blue. 8-10%Mental failure. Fainting. Nausea. Unconsciousness. Vomiting. 6-8%8 minutes - fatal 6 minutes - 50% fatal 4-5 minutes - possible recovery 4-6%Coma in 40 seconds. Death.
18©2006 TEEX Oxygen Enriched Atmospheres Oxygen level above 23.5% Causes flammable and combustible materials to burn violently when ignited Hair, clothing, materials, etc. Oil soaked clothing and materials Never use pure oxygen to ventilate Never store or place compressed tanks in a confined space
19©2006 TEEX Flammable Atmospheres Critical Factors: Oxygen content in the air Presence of a flammable gas, or vapor Presence of dust (visibility of 5’ or less) Proper air/gas mixture can lead to explosion Typical Ignition Sources: Sparking or electric tool Welding / cutting operations Smoking
20©2006 TEEX Toxic Atmospheres Product stored in a confined space: Gases released when cleaning Materials absorbed into walls of confined space Decomposition of materials in the confined space Work performed in a confined space: Welding, cutting, brazing, soldering Painting, scraping, sanding, degreasing Sealing, bonding, melting Areas adjacent to a confined space
21©2006 TEEX Hydrogen Sulfide Decomposition of materials, human waste Naturally present in some oil/gas reservoirs Rotten egg odor at low concentrations Possibly no warning at high concentrations PPMEffectTime 10 Permissible Exposure Level8 Hours Mild Irritation - eyes, throat1 Hour Significant Irritation1 Hour Unconsciousness, Death1/2 - 1 Hour >1000Unconsciousness, DeathMinutes
