Confined spaces in the water industry - the risks and how to address them
Supplied by MSA Australia on Friday, 27 February, 2015
Some of the worst places to work in are confined spaces, the main reason being that they are not built for that purpose - their purpose is the storage of equipment or they are used as an entry/exit point for inspections and tests, etc.
Some of the risks involved when working in confined spaces are:
-> Restricted entry or exit
-> Harmful airborne contaminants or unsafe oxygen level
