Confined Spaces

OSHA’s Permit-Required Confined Space standard is intended to protect workers from toxic, explosive, or asphyxiating atmospheres; from possible engulfment or entrapment; and from other hazards. Under this standard, employers must:

  • Identify each permit-required confined space in their workplace.
  • Prevent unauthorized entry into permit confined spaces.
  • Protect authorized entrants from hazards through a permit space program.
