Summary: Confined Spaces


The Safety and Emergency Planning Committee of the Illinois Section of AWWA has developed a series of webinars to aid Municipalities in developing and/or maintaining their own safety programs.  These webinars will provide basic information for individuals to expand to be Municipality specific in order to meet regulatory requirements.  Confined Spaces is the second topic in the series.

A confined space is an area large enough for an employee to enter and do work, is not intended for continuous occupancy, and has limited means of entry of exit.  Confined spaces include, but are not limited to, tanks, vessels, silos, storage bins, hoppers, vaults, pits, manholes, tunnels, equipment housings, ductwork and pipelines.  Based on recognized hazards, a confined space can be classified as a permit-required confined space.

This webinar will review what a confined space is, identify the dangers associated with confined spaces, define authorized entrants and attendants, review the limitations of someone who is not trained in confined spaces, and review what to do in the event of an emergency and technical rescue.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback
