Confined Space Entry Protection by CableSafe

Preventing entry into manholes and other confined spaces

Manholes, crawl spaces, tunnels, sewers, tanks, pipelines and trenches, all have one thing in common, they are enclosed or partially enclosed and are refer to as confined spaces.

These confined spaces are not intended for continuous occupancy, why? If people work in a confined space, they could face life-threatening hazards such as toxic substances, electrocutions, explosions and asphyxiation, there could result in serious injury or death.

A confined space can be more hazardous than regular workspaces for many reasons, many workers are injured and killed each year while working in confined spaces. To effectively control the risks of accidents with unauthorized confined space entries, the entrance and exit should be restricted.

CableSafe’s confined space entry protection barrier or manhole protection barrier is the ideal tool for employees and contractors to secure these dangerous openings. The barrier warns co-workers and public of dangers and prevents unauthorized (or accidental) entry.

“In the construction industry, entering confined spaces is often necessary, but fatalities don’t have to happen,” said Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez.

The law requires employers to provide their employees with safe and healthful workplaces. With CablesSafe range of safety products you can avoid penalties that come with non-compliance to safety standards and legislations.
