Confined Space Entry
Many companies find that they have equipment or processes that require their personnel to enter confined spaces.
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.146 defines confined space as any space that has limited or restricted means of entry, is not designed for continuous occupancy, and is large enough and configured so that a person can enter the space and maneuver well enough to perform tasks.
OSHA further documents in 29 CFR 1926.21 that there is an affirmative duty on an employer to train employees who enter confined or enclosed spaces.
