Confined Space Safety Case Studies and Checklist published

Confined Spaces

Abhisam informs us that they have published a new white paper on Confined Space Safety.

Confined spaces are a major workplace hazard today. However,  the concept of  what are confined spaces is very vague, in the minds of workers as well as their supervisors and managers, even though OSHA (US Occupational Safety and Health Administration) has given guidelines for the same. OSHA also regularly publishes actual fatality statistics regarding these hazards  that prove that this is one of the top hazards in many workplaces, not just the chemical and other process industries. If such is the state in the continental United States and US administered territories, the situation in other parts of the world may be worse.

This White paper provides  a checklist that helps easily identify confined space hazards in your own workplace.

Confined spaces are one of the top workplace hazards today. However, even today the concept of a confined space is very vague, in the minds of workers as well as their supervisors and managers. OSHA (US Occupational Safety and Health Administration) regularly publishes actual confined space fatality statistics  that prove that this is an omnipresent hazard in many workplaces, not just the chemical and other process industries.

This White paper provides three recent cases from different industries and a checklist that helps identify confined space hazards in your own workplace. It includes learning from three recent cases too.
