  • The next Steps cover Cal/OSHA safety regulations for Confined Spaces. Where appropriate, we have referenced the code from Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations.

    The topics we will cover in this isoBlog are:

    -How to Recognize a Confined Space
    -Examples of Confined Spaces
    -Employer's Responsibility
    -Dangerous Air Contamination

    After each of the next Steps, select the 'successful' response to indicate that you have read and understand the Step.

    Select 'successful' now and proceed.
  • How to Recognize a Confined Space

    Confined space is defined in 5158(b)(1) as space that exhibits both of the following conditions:

    -The existing ventilation does not remove dangerous air contaminants or oxygen-deficient air that exists or may exist or develop

    -Ready access or egress for the removal of a suddenly disabled employee is difficult because of the location or size of the opening(s)
  • Examples of Confined Spaces

    The following are examples of some of the locations which may exhibit confined-space conditions:

    -Trenches and Excavations
    -Sewers and Drains
    -Wells and Shafts
    -Crawl Spaces
    -Pits, Tubs, and Bins
  • Employer's Responsibility

    Employers must check initially and if conditions can change, they must check on an ongoing basis to discern whether work locations exhibit confined-space conditions.

    If confined-space conditions have been identified, the following must be completed before employees may begin work:

    -Written operating procedures must be prepared and employees must be trained

    -Lines containing hazardous substances must be disconnected, blinded, or blocked

    -The space must be emptied, flushed, or purged

    -The air must be tested for dangerous contamination or oxygen deficiency

    -Ventilation must be provided if testing reveals any atmospheric hazard
  • Dangerous Air Contamination

    Working in a confined space where dangerous air contamination exists requires:

    -Appropriate respiratory protection

    -Provisions for ready entry and exit where feasible

    -The wearing of a safety harness attached to a retrieval line and retrieval equipment (go to 'docs' tab above page 25 of the Cal/OSHA Pocket Guide for an Illustration)

    -One stand-by employee (with entry gear) trained in first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation plus one additional employee within sight or call

    -Effective means of communication between the employee in the confined space and the standby employee
