Confined Space (Permit Required) - Entry Supervisors

Performing regular maintenance activities and unexpected repairs in permit-required confined spaces can quickly become life or death situations for many authorized entrants. Therefore, it is critical that employers have practices and procedures in place to ensure employee safety, including designated people who have active roles in entry operations. Entry supervisors play a key role in the entry process since they are responsible for:· Determining if acceptable entry conditions are present at a permit space where entry is planned;· Authorizing entry and overseeing entry operations; and · Terminating entry if hazardous conditions develop. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), 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.
