No Confined Space Entry
Sixty per cent of workers injured or killed in confined spaces are those who tried to rescue a co-worker who had fallen victim to the hazardous conditions inside the space. It's a tough impulse to overcome, but never try to rescue a co-worker alone especially if you are not wearing the proper PPE or are not trained. The rescuer should always have a backup person.
As you can see, confined spaces are dangerous. Specific permits and training are required to work in them. If you don't know or are not sure whether a permit is required or what PPE to wear or what to do, these are all clear indications you should stay away from confined spaces. Talk to your supervisor immediately.
Remember, it's your life at risk.
Confined spaces require extreme caution. If you are not trained or do not have authorization to work in a confined space, don't.
