What is a confined space?

A “confined space” is considered as any space, of an enclosed nature, with a reasonably foreseeable, specified risk of Fire or Explosion, Overheating, Bad Atmosphere, Drowning or Free Flowing Solids.

In most cases, a confined space is just large enough for people to enter and work inside. But the entrance and exit is severely limited and therefore space inside is not made for spending long lengths of time in.
