Read Confined Spaces: Airborne dust & particulates accumulate quicklyConfined spaces can be dangerous for workers for many reasons. Limited ventilation and reduced airflow can exacerbate respiratory hazards like fuels, gases, dust, and particles for workers in confined spaces. Whether your worksite includes permit-required or non-permit-required confined spaces, reducing respiratory risk is crucial.

In an article published July 1st by ISHN (Industrial Safety & Hygiene News) magazine, TSI Product Manager Kevin Chase explains some of the respiratory dangers that are unique to confined space work, including:

  • OSHA classifications
  • respirable particle exposure readings
  • types of airborne dusts and materials
  • crystalline respirable silica monitoring
  • certifications like IECEx/ATEX and CSA, and
  • benefits of intrinsically safe tools to measure exposure in confined spaces.
