Space Entry

The Confined Space Program contains requirements for practices and procedures to protect employees from the hazards of entry into a confined space. The written program adheres to the requirements set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in Section 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Standard Number 1910.146. An important component of the Confined Space Program is the requirement for entry permits, which can be obtained through EH&S.

If you have questions about confined spaces, need additional assistance or need a Confined Space Entry Permit, contact Steve Davidson at 292-1284 (extension 49459). Additionally, Confined Space Entry Permits can be requested by using the EHS Service Request Form. Select Occupational Health and Safety from the Service Area drop-down menu and Confined Space Entry Permit from the Service drop-down menu.
