FAQs About Confined Space Entry & Rescue Equipment

What is considered a confined space?

  • Confined spaces are spaces where the work could result in severe injury, and special procedures are required to protect workers. Examples of confined spaces are fuel storage tanks, sewers, manholes, elevator pits, ductwork, pipelines or underground vaults. For more information, check out When is a Trench a Confined Space? and brush up on your confined space safety knowledge.

How many people are required for confined space entry?

  • The requirement is to have three workers for confined space entry. At minimum, you need to have a supervisor, an attendant and an entrant.

When does entry into a confined space require a permit?

  • According to OSHA requirements, a permit-requiring confined space contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere. The space has material with the potential to engulf someone who enters the space. The area has an internal configuration that might cause an entrant to be trapped or asphyxiated by inwardly converging walls or by a floor that slopes downward. And finally, the space contains other recognized serious safety or health hazards.
