A confined space can be defined as a space large enough for a worker to fully enter in it and do the work, as a space that is not designed for permanent residence of workers and has restrictions on entry or exit. The greatest hazards in confined spaces are related to the atmospheric conditions of those spaces. The atmosphere inside the confined spaces depends on the type of the space, the work that is taking place inside and on what has previously been stored there. The most common hazards in confined spaces are the risk of suffocation, the risk of fire and / or explosion and the risk of poisoning. Work in confined spaces is a high-risk activity, so the implementation of occupational safety measures is crucial for maintaining the health and safety of all workers who enter and work in such spaces.
