Confined Space Test


1. A confined space can be described as any small work area.

2. A gas test must be made within 30 minutes after entering a confined space.
3. A normal oxygen level in a confined or open space is approximately 21 %.
4. An oxygen level of 24.5% - 26% provides a margin of safety often needed
in small spaces.
5. Many confined spaces limit the workers ability to move about freely and
may be difficult to exit alone.
6. A rescue plan should be made to remove a sick or injured worker from a
confined space.
7. Safety harnesses may be worn only in above ground confined spaces while
working at heights.
8. In the HGP a work permit is required for all confined spaces where work is
to be performed.
9. A joint site inspection and evaluation is needed only for High Risk
confined spaces.
10.In the HGP, a gas test must be performed before entering any confined
11.Access and egress is critical when working in a confined space.
12.Confined space entrants must sign in before entering unless they are only
inspecting the work area.
13.Work permits are always required for work performed inside the HGP.
14.A standby man is required to monitor the confined space at least every half
15.Good ventilation adds to the safety of a confined space.
16.A standby man should maintain safe access & good housekeeping outside
of the confined space, but he is not to monitor or observe the worker or
workers inside the confined space.
17.In case of an emergency evacuate the confined space if possible.
18.A Pre–entry for gas testing is allowed to determine if conditions are safe
for workers. Only one man may enter the space for Pre–entry testing.
19.A fire watch is always required to be present when the confined space
involves hot work.
20.Workers may begin work in a confined space before the work permit is
issued provided it is low risk work.
