HOME CONFINED SPACE

CONFINED SPACE

There are numerous confined spaces (pits, manholes, tanks, etc.) on the University’s grounds. Some may be added during new construction and renovations. If your work requires you to enter a confined space, you must follow certain procedures to ensure your safety. Confined Space policy, guidelines, and procedures can be found at UVA’s Facilities Management website.

Confined space entry presents a number of potential hazards. UVA’s Confined Space Program establishes a standard means of assessing these spaces, as well as providing training for personnel required to enter these spaces.
