According to OSHA, a confined space is a space that is large enough and configured in a way that an employee can enter into it to perform work. These spaces have limited or restricted means for entry or exit and are not designed for continuous employee occupation.
Confined spaces may include sewers, tanks, boilers, crawl spaces, pull pits, acid pits, vaults, storm drains, pipelines, bins,tubs, ducts and vessels. Entering into any of these areas may be necessary for getting the job done but it could be made safer through proper identification.
That's why Accuform Signs provides support to assist with permits and training, and has developed a complete line of Barriers, Confined Space Signs, Confined Space Labels and Confined Space Tags to meet almost every confined space identification need.
