Confined space entry must be approached with a professional attitude and a methodical system designed to prevent situations from escalating into a disaster. The National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) found that in more than 50% of confined space accidents, the rescuer becomes the victim. NIOSH also found that very few organizations provided written procedures. Failure to closely follow specific rules, regulations and confined space safety standards can guarantee serious injury or even death.
