Is large enough and so configured that an employee can enter bodily and perform work; Has limited or restricted means of entry or exit; Is not designed for continuous worker occupancy. Yep! Just 2 classes Two Classifications for all confined spaces: PERMIT REQUIRED CONFINED SPACE (PRCS) NON-PERMIT REQUIRED CONFINED SPACE (NPRCS)
5 Permit-Required Confined Space A Permit-Required Confined Space is confined space that has one or more of the following characteristics: Contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere; Contains a material that has the potential for engulfing an entrant; Has an internal configuration such that an entrant could become trapped or asphyxiated; or Contains any other serious safety or health hazard.

7 Non-Permit-Required Confined Space EXAMPLE Trench greater than 4 feet deep, with no utility lines & atmosphere tested and LEL readings and O2 level is acceptable & no gas powered equipment in the trench
8 CONFINED SPACE DEFINITIONS Attendant: An individual stationed outside PRCS who monitors the entrants and performs attendants duties assigned in the employers permit space program.

Operations of equipment including monitoring and rescue equipment and: Evacuation signals procedures if need to notify the attendant to evacuate if detection of any dangerous condition.
19 SPECIFIC TRAINING REQUIREMENTS ATTENDANTS: Procedures to monitor (inside and outside) the PRCS to recognize hazards that effect entrants Procedures for communicating with entrants Procedures for evacuating entrants Know conditions when evacuation is required Procedures to control access to space and to warn unauthorized people away from the space Their responsibility to remain outside the PRCS during duty, unless they are relieved by another attendant and Non entry rescue procedures
20 SPECIFIC TRAINING REQUIREMENTS SUPERVISORS: Verifying permit completed properly Verifying tests specified by the permit have been conducted Verifying that procedures & equipment specified by the permit are in place before allowing entry to begin Procedures for determining if conditions are acceptable for entry Authorizing entry Supervising entry operations; and Terminating entry
21 Two Options for Entering Confined Spaces: Permit-required confined space entry For hazardous or potentially hazardous confined space work ENTRY PROCEDURES Non-permit confined space entry For nonhazardous confined space work
22 Permit-Required Confined Space Isolate the space Ventilate the space Conduct Tailboard Complete permit Test the atmosphere Enter the space NOTE: All vertical PRCS to have a mechanical retrieval device when 5 foot or deeper
23 Permit-Required Confined Space Isolate the space from all hazards Close Valves Double block & bleed, or Blank flange Empty the Space Depressurize, vent & drain Lockout/Tagout Equipment Electrical sources Rotating/reciprocating parts Hazardous materials Clean residue from the space These things will eliminate any potential hazards in the space
24 Use mechanical ventilation Fans Air horns Ventilate the Space Ventilate at the rate of at least four (4) volumes per hour Larger spaces require more ventilation Make sure air supply is not contaminated Ventilation air supply must be from fresh air uncontaminated with flammables, toxins, etc. IMPORTANT TO KNOW Ventilation 100% of time per
25 Conduct a Pre Entry Briefing Entire crew must attend Attendants, entrants, entry supervisor Review hazards of entry and work Review PPE Review procedure for contacting rescue verify rescue available Complete permit See a copy of a sample permit on page #4
26 EMERGENCY RESCUE On-Site Rescue Team Same level training as entrants Two members trained First aid and CPR Use of all PPE and equipment Off-Site Rescue Informed of all hazards in space Knowledge of when entrants are in and have left the space Practice rescues minimum of once every 12 months.

29 IMPORTANT NOTICE Any time a limit is exceeded, no matter what the reason, all personnel shall immediately exit the space, and no others shall enter until atmospheric conditions are returned to safe levels. There are NO EXCEPTIONS to this rule!
30 Atmosphere Testing To Be Performed: Prior to every entry when the space is vacant; At least hourly for permit-required confined spaces. More frequently, if conditions or suspicions warrant. In Sewers, Wet Wells CONTINUOUS Monitoring is required!
31 TESTING PROCEDURES Always test the air at various levels to be sure that the entire space is safe. Good Air Good air near the opening does NOT mean there is good air at the bottom! Poor Air Deadly Air
32 Enter the Space and Proceed with work: An attendant shall be posted at the entrance for the duration of the work. He/she shall be in constant communication with the entrants while the job is in progress. All entrants shall sign log when entering the space & sign out when exiting.

36 Enter the Space and Proceed with work: If non-permit conditions change during the job, the space shall be immediately evacuated, and re-classified as a permitrequired confined space; or conditions shall be returned to non-permit conditions and again certified as such by the entry supervisor. Look here these are procedures covered in the contractor Confined Space Program
