Confined Spaces Entry Policy


If, heaven forbid, one of your workers were to be killed at work, odds are that it will happen inside a confined space like a tank, tunnel, silo or well. Confined spaces kill not just workers but co-workers and emergency responders who enter the space to rescue them. OHS laws of every jurisdiction require employers to take measures to identify, assess and manage confined spaces hazards. And if you allow your workers to enter those spaces, you may have to implement a confined spaces entry program, depending on which OHS laws apply.


While there are slight differences by geography, the basic measures required to control confined spaces entry are fairly uniform across Canada. Thus, while this Model Policy is based on Alberta regulations, OHS managers can easily adapt it to fit their own jurisdiction’s OHS requirements.
