In the water and wastewater industry, operators are often required to enter confined spaces in order to carry out cleaning, servicing, maintenance or inspections. There is a variety of confined spaces in the water industry, such as manholes, sewers, tanks, tunnels, lift/pump stations, pipelines, wells, sludge digesters, and trenches.
A confined space can be defined as an area that:
- Is large enough for an employee to bodily enter and perform work
- Has limited or restricted means of entry or exit
- Is not designed for continuous human occupancy
Often a complex set of safety equipment, including both PPE and gas monitoring, is required depending on the application.
