Confined Space

A confined space is a space large enough and so configured that an individual can bodily enter and perform assigned work, has limited or restricted means for entry or exit, and is not designed for continuous personnel occupancy. A confined or enclosed space includes, but is not limited to, tanks, vessels, storage bins, boilers, ventilation or exhaust ducts, sewers, underground utility vaults, and tunnels. General Safety has developed a program to protect individuals from the hazards of entry into confined spaces at Georgia Tech.

This describes the requirements and responsibilities for anyone entering a confined space.

This form is completed before work is performed in a permit-required confined space.
