Departments whose workers are expected to enter confined spaces must develop a written program that outlines procedures to be used for safe entry. These procedures are usually incorporated into a written entry permit. Assistance in developing a written confined space entry program is available through EHS.
A Confined Space Entry Permit must be completed for all entries into permit-required confined spaces. The permit must be completed at the entry and must be closed out following completion of the entry. Closed permits must be submitted to your departmental confined space representative for annual review.
