FROM THE PREFACE This book brings together (in one text) all of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's regulatory requirements for making safe and proper confined space entries. Because confined space entry is a complicated procedure-and a process that contains inherent risks-those concerned with safety in the work place are constantly concerned with how to reduce the risks associated with confined space entry, how to eliminate or decrease the hazards workers face in confined spaces, and how to prevent injuries and fatalities from occurring in confined spaces. But comprehensive materials on confined space entry are difficult to find. Surprisingly little material on the subject is commercially available. Confined Space Entry: A Guide to Compliance collects all of the associated requirements and regulations, including OSHA's Confined Space, Lockout/Tagout, Respiratory Protection Standards and Hot Work Permit requirements in this guidebook. These separate, specific safety standards and requirements have been combined and organized-as they should be, since each is married to the other-in a way that enables you (the user) to easily determine the critical relationship(s) between and among them-but more importantly, to teach you how to enter confined spaces safely-and how to provide workers with effective training for proper confined space entry. Written in user-friendly, jargon-free plain English, this guidebook provides you with clear sample programs to serve as models when you write your own programs. Workers have a growing need for more knowledge of the hazards of their work environments-and especially of confined spaces. To fulfill this imperative need, individuals and government must work together to better inform-and protect-these workers as they are exposed to a variety of complex and potentially life-threatening situations in confined spaces. The message this text delivers is simple: The better both workers and management understand the potential hazards and the implementation of measures to either eliminate or reduce the risks and hazards of confined space entry, the safer the workers and the facility-and the better the relationship between the operating facility, the workers, the community, and the regulators. As a result of no information, misinformation, no training, no supervision, little or no knowledge, confined space fatalities are real-they occur. They occur far too often.

Confined Space Entry (CSE) works are comparatively more difficult than similar works done in the open and free environment. This is because the work conditions in Confined Spaces are more hazardous.Although, the hazards involved in CSE works are well recognized and documented, accidents involving CSE activities are still recorded annually. These accidents can occur within a wide range of industries such as Chemical Plant complexes, Oil and Gas industries, Construction Industries, silos, storage tanks of Agricultural concerns, among others. Those affected can include, not only those within the confined space(s) but also, the inexperienced who may ignorantly (or over-zealously) attempt rescue operations within the confined space.To eliminate these types of incidents when work is done in confined space, it is good practice to develop (and ensure strict compliance to) safe "Confined Space Entry" Procedures. This procedure is developed with a view to providing maximum protection to all persons involved.This book is therefore intended for: -all who work in Industry especially those of Chemical, Oil & Gas and other Process Industries; Utility works; Logistics; etc-those involved in Production, maintenance, design and construction activities at any level or in any capacity in carrying out work activities in Confined space(s).It is also intended to act as a resource and guidance material to advise those responsible for such operations on the Safe Work Procedures and Precautions (or Safeguards) which are essential to achieving safe work activities in Confined Spaces.

Safety and Health in Confined Spaces goes beyond all other resources currently available. International in scope, the 15 chapters and 10 appendices cover every facet of this important subject. A significant addition to the literature, this book provides a confined space focus to other health and safety concepts. Confined spaces differ from other workspaces because their boundary surfaces amplify the consequences of hazardous conditions. The relationship between the individual, the boundary surface, and the hazardous condition is the critical factor in the onset, outcome, and severity of accidents in these workspaces. The author uses information about causative and other factors from analysis of fatal accidents to develop a hazard assessment and hazard management system. He provides a detailed, disciplined protocol, covering 36 hazardous conditions, that addresses all segments of work--the undisturbed space, entry preparation, work activity, and emergency preparedness and response--and illustrates how to use it. Safety and Health in Confined Spaces gives you the tools you need for preventing and responding to accidents.
