CONFINED SPACE ENTRY

CONFINED SPACE ENTRY

Whitford Liquid Waste has the required expertise, experience and certified staff to perform confined space entries for cleaning, inspecting and maintenance. Thanks to our extensive training and certification, we ensure that these potentially dangerous tasks are undertaken safely and in line with OH&S procedures and regulations.

Confined Spaces are enclosed or partially enclosed spaces that are at atmospheric pressure during occupancy and

  • are not intended or designed primarily as a place of work, and
  • may have restricted means for entry and exit, and
  • may have atmospheric contaminants or an unsafe oxygen level, and
  • may cause engulfment due to (e.g. collapse, fumes, immersion, fire) 

Storage tanks, tunnels, tank cars, process vessels, boilers, pressure vessels, silos and other tank like compartments, some pits or degreasers, pipes, sewers, shafts, ducts and similar structures are considered confined spaces

Areas not usually considered confined spaces include offices, workshops, garage vehicle service pits, naturally ventilated roof spaces and sub floor areas (above ground level) where there is no source of atmospheric contamination.
