Before any work in a confined space is permitted, you must apply for a permit.
A confined space means an enclosed or partially enclosed space that:
- is not designed or intended to be occupied by a person,
- is at normal atmospheric pressure while a person is in the space,
- is a risk to health and safety from either
- an atmosphere that doesn’t have a safe oxygen level
- contaminants like airborne gases, vapours and dusts, that may cause injury from fire or explosion
- has harmful concentrations of any airborne contaminants, and
- is at risk of engulfment.
