Confined Spaces Consulting

A confined space program can help your protect business and workers, let an expert help

Do you have spaces in your workplace that are fully or partially enclosed that aren’t designed or constructed for continuous human occupancy? Is it possible that a hazard may occur because of its construction, location, contents, or because of work that is done in it? If you answered yes, these are considered confined spaces and you may benefit from the help of an expert consultant.

Identification of confined spaces

Have you been wondering if areas in your workplace would be considered a confined space? The only way to determine if it is, is to have it evaluated. Let our expert consultants assist you in correctly identifying your fully or partially enclosed spaces meeting the criteria of a confined space.

Development of confined spaces program

Once you’ve identified a confined space that workers may enter to perform their work you are required to develop a written confined spaces program. The key to any successful program is to have a plan. Don’t know where to start? Let our consultants help.

Conduct confined spaces hazard assessments

By law, before any worker can enter a confined space you must ensure that an adequate assessment of the related hazards is conducted. The assessment includes a wide range of hazards and may seem daunting; however, our knowledgeable and highly experienced experts are here for you and will work closely with you throughout the process.
