Notable Confined Spaces and IssuesNear Fatal or Fatal Outcomes
This session will present actual confined space scenarios and the EHS issues associated with a fatality that occurred in a new manhole that was only 18 days old and no chemicals were used in the space. The presentation will discuss soil gas as the possible cause of the hazardous atmosphere.
Best Practices for Confined Space Monitoring
The focus of this presentation is to explain how to select the appropriate gas monitor for a particular confined space, identify the various types of calibration and function checks required, and outline proper atmospheric monitoring methods and interpret results. The presentation will include calibration demonstrations. The new NFPA 350, Guide for Safe Confined Space Entry and Work will be referenced throughout the presentation.
Notable Confined Spaces and IssuesOther Potential Exposures
This session will present actual confined space scenarios and the EHS issues associated with them:
1. Large scale, legal marijuana production is associated with unique atmospheric hazards and confined space issues. Examples are: CO2 added to speed plant growth and flammable liquids/gases used in extraction procedures. Many enclosed working areas meet criteria for classification as permit required confined spaces. Rescue procedures include use of portable atmospheric monitors with sensors that are appropriate to measure these hazards. A standard 4-gas confined space monitor is not enough.This package awards 2 Contact Hours.
