Confined Space Atmospheric Testing

Product Description

A hazardous and potentially deadly atmosphere is a risk that exists every time your employees enter a confined space. In fact, nine out of ten confined space fatalities are due to hazardous atmospheres.

Atmospheric testing can be one of the best lines of defense against this dangerous working condition. Confined Space Atmospheric Testing will help educate individuals on the basics and importance of proper atmospheric testing techniques for confined spaces.

Identifying Confined Spaces
OSHA defines a confined space as any space that:

  • Is large enough for a person to enter and perform work in
  • Has a limited opening for entry and exit
  • Isn't intended for continuous human occupancy.

Any space that contains serious hazards that could cause death or serious injury must be classified as a permit-required space.

Identifying Atmospheric Hazards
Most atmospheric hazards in a confined space are invisible to the naked eye as well as odorless. Atmospheric hazards are basically divided into three main categories:

  • Unsafe oxygen levels (either oxygen deficient or oxygen enriched)
  • Flammable gases
  • Toxic vapors and/or toxic dust particulates.

Specialized equipment and procedures are required to detect all three of these potential dangers.

Testing for Atmospheric Hazards
Before ANY entry into a confined space, the atmosphere inside must be tested for hazards using a calibrated direct-reading instrument. Results must be noted on the entry permit. Evaluation testing determines:

  • Chemical hazards present or that may become present in the space's atmosphere
  • Procedures and conditions that must be met to ensure that atmospheric conditions are safe for workers
  • What equipment should be used.

Added features and benefits of DVD training include:

  • A customizable PowerPoint presentation
  • Informative training points and bonus material for refresher or training talks
  • Video-enriched training organized by learning objectives that facilitates discussion
  • A printable Leader's Guide
  • Resourceful web links to organizations such as OSHA, FEMA, NSC and the CDC, where viewers can download and print information on regulatory standards.

This handbook reviews how and when to test for unsafe air and discusses what to do when air is unsafe.

While the number of pages varies, most handbooks are 16 pages in length and include a tear-out quiz.

Handbooks must be purchased in packs of 10. When ordering, enter the number of packs you would like to purchase. For example, if you would like to order 50 handbooks, enter "5" in the quantity field.

Quantity discounts are available for orders of 10 or more packs. Call 1-877-262-7825 for more information.
