New AIHA Fact Sheet Focuses on Eliminating Confined Spaces, Minimizing Hazards

Posted May 28, 2014

The AIHA Confined Spaces Committee recently developed a fact sheet on how Prevention through Design concepts can help eliminate confined spaces and minimize hazards.

The fact sheet describes some of the top design principles to consider for confined spaces, including:

  • preventing the creation of confined spaces or eliminating existing confined spaces
  • eliminating the need for entry into confined spaces
  • making entry into confined spaces impossible if entry is not required
  • designing the space to ensure ability to rescue
