Confined Space Safety DVD | Confined Space Safety DVD
This DVD comes with a Facilitator's Guide
Every year there are serious accidents involving confined spaces in the workplace. A significant number of these are fatal and it is not uncommon for accidents to result in multiple fatalities. In order to reduce the number of confined space accidents we need to have a fundamental understanding of the hazards and risks that are associated with confined spaces.
This program starts by defining a confined space and then talks in some detail about confined space entry permits.
The next section covers the four main reasons why accidents occur in confined spaces.
Featured in the program is the approach that should be taken to deal with the two major hazard groups associated with confined spaces, which are hazardous atmospheres and energy sources.
Hazardous atmospheres include:
* oxygen deficient atmospheres
* oxygen enriched atmospheres
* flammable or explosive atmospheres, and
* toxic or poisonous atmospheres.
