Confined Space (Permit Required) - Authorized Entrant

Entering confined spaces to perform regular maintenance activities and unexpected repairs can be risky, especially if employees do not fully understand the threat of airborne hazards that they cannot see, smell, or feel. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) reports that about 63 occupational fatalities per year in the United States are caused by improper confined space entries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that over 60 percent of the fatalities were would-be rescuers and estimates that 85 percent of deaths and injuries in confined spaces could be prevented, if industry would fully implement sound confined space entry permit programs. So why do some confined spaces require a permit and others do not? If a confined space meets OSHA's permit requirements, employers must have practices and procedures in place to ensure employee safety, including designated people who have active roles in entry operations
