Confined Space / Fall Protection – Ventilation
A Confined Space, in terms of OSHA and NIOSH safety requirements, refers to an area whose enclosed environment and limited access make it dangerous to workers. Confined spaces can be above or below ground level. Examples of confined spaces include pipes and sewers, crawl spaces, vents, vaults, tanks, pits, storage bins, vats and silos. Any area where access or egress is limited may be considered a confined space, especially if it is an area that can trap gases or where an injured or impaired worker may become trapped.
Ventilation is one of the most effective means of controlling hazardous atmospheres in restricted spaces.
Fans and blowers designed specifically for tight spaces can keep workers safe and promote good ventilation. Effective ventilation systems provide a method of maintaining a breathable atmosphere within the space by achieving a reduction in the level of atmospheric contaminates (gases, vapors, mists, fumes and dust) within the space.

Davit Arm retrieval systems are used to tie off workers who are suspended below a surface.
Davits can be used for raising and lowering the worker to an area below the unit.
It can be mounted to a number of different support structures.
Davit Arm retrieval systems are an essential part of a confined space access or rescue plan. Davit Arms are also commonly used by Emergency Response Units for rescue in confined spaces.
