Description: Work in confined and enclosed space has a greater likelihood of causing fatalities, severe injuries and illness than any other type of shipyard work or on board ships.
The key hazards associated with confined spaces are:
— serious risk of fire or explosion;
— loss of consciousness from asphyxiation arising from gas, fumes, vapor or lack of oxygen;
— drowning arising from increased water level;
— loss of consciousness arising from an increase in body temperature;
— asphyxiation/suffocation arising from free flowing solid (engulfment) or the inability to reach a breathable atmosphere due to entrapment.
Surveyors will routinely enter confined spaces that are difficult to access due to small and/or narrow openings. There may be
physical constraints within the space which need to be considered, and the space itself may be cramped permitting only restricted mobility.
