Danger Confined Space Signs Protect Workers

A confined space is a dangerous place, and many hazards there are unseen. Danger Confined Space Signs that meet OSHA and ANSI standards keep your facility updated with confined space regulations. The hazardous atmosphere in a confined space often requires the use of personal protective equipment, lockout tags, and permits. Many danger confined space signs display this information for worker safety.

Confined space regulations require many checks before entry into a confined space. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Checking levels of oxygen and other gases
  • Checking ventilation
  • Insuring that personnel is on-hand to respond to emergencies

These checks are important due to the specific hazards that a confined space presents. Danger confined space signs should be posted near sites such as silos, storage bins and tanks, and underground areas. Confined space regulations for these areas focus on the difficulty and restriction of entry and exit from these places where the potential of entrapment exists.
