Description:

This monograph will be included in a future ACGIH® Signature Publication that will be entitled: Air Sampling Technologies: Principles and Applications. Humans have known the hazards associated with confined spaces since ancient times. OSHA and NIOSH have conducted numerous studies related to confined spaces fatalities. Tragically, many of the confined spaces multiple fatalities occurred when ill-equipped rescuers also entered the confined space unprotected and lost their lives. Characteristics of confined spaces and specific hazards are described in this monograph. Risk factors and fatalities in confined spaces along with regulations, standards and guidelines for safe entry and work in confined spaces are also discussed. Atmospheric testing of hazardous atmospheres and testing protocols are covered in greater detail.
