How a Health and Safety Advisor Can Help Your Safety Issues with Confined Spaces

Safetech Consulting - Thursday, February 01, 2018


Construction personnel must work in a variety of challenging conditions, and one of the most difficult may be confined space work. Confined space construction tasks are also a challenge for the employer—because your company is charged with keeping your employees as safe as possible. If your work projects involve tight spaces, our construction safety experts can help. Our health and safety advisors in Edmonton specialize in confined space safety for workers in the construction field.

What Are Confined Spaces in Construction?

Confined spaces are spaces that were not created for continuous occupancy. The spaces were not initially built for people to enter, but there happens to be enough space for workers to access, enter and perform repairs or work tasks. Confined spaces may include a(n):

  • Air duct
  • Hopper
  • Housing (equipment enclosure)
  • Manhole
  • Oil pipeline
  • Pit
  • Silo
  • Shaft
  • Storage tank or bin
  • Train tunnel
  • Vault
  • Vessel
  • And other confined spaces where completely free movement, or unplanned movement, is not possible.
