Confined Spaces

A confined space, as defined in 29 CFR 1910.146, has limited or restricted means for entry or exit (ex. tanks, vessels, silos, vaults, pits, and storage bins) and is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. An inventory of all confined spaces at the University of Richmond has been compiled to provide potential hazards, personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements, and entry procedures for each identified space.
