Confined Space Entry
Although the definition of a confined space entry varies depending on industry, the conditions are generally the same. A limited or restricted space with limited means of entry and exit and has a potential for a significant hazard to be present. A utility tunnel, inside a large capacity boiler, fluid storage tank, septic tank, grease trap and underground vault are all examples of confined spaces. In the United States, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) requires that proper safety and rescue equipment are used and only trained, certified personnel preform a confined space entry.
Brewer Commercial Services also provide Confined Space Services (for hazardous enclosed or partially enclosed space, which may contain potentially harmful elements). There are major hazards involved with working in a confined space. Having undergone specialist training, our employees reduce these risks by following a set of rules and procedures to enable them to work safely and efficiently. They’re experts in working in confined spaces such as manholes, pits and sumps, sewers, boilers, and storage tanks. This training enables our employees to comply with the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations when performing these tasks.
