Permit Required Confined Space

What are Confined Spaces? TAS can assist with Confined Space Entry (CSE) and Confined Space Rescue (CSR).

Confined Spaces Dallas-Fort Worth Texas

Many workplaces have areas that meet OSHA’s definition of “confined spaces” – although certain confined areas are not necessarily designed for people, they are large enough for workers to enter and perform certain jobs. A confined space also has limited means for entry or exit. These spaces include areas such as tanks, vessels, vaults, silos, storage bins, silos, hoppers, silos, manholes, pits, tunnels, equipment housings, ductwork and pipelines. There may be other examples in your workplace.

When there are additional hazards present, OSHA elevates them to a category of a “permit-required confined space” (permit space). This standard is used to describe a confined space that has other hazards which can have some of the following characteristics: containing or can have or potentially have a hazardous atmosphere. The space can also contain material that may be able to engulf an entrant; has inwardly converging walls or floors that have a downward slope and tapers into a smaller area that may trap or asphyxiate an entrant, an example of this is a silo with a cone bottom (sand, grain, etc..). Other recognized hazards can include exposed live wires, piping into the space that may have liquid or a gas, unguarded machinery or additional machinery that has a hazard requiring locking out of potential energy sources (LOTO).

Confined Space Entry & Rescue

Environmental hazards can also be a factor. Heat stress of the area due to the type of space entered. Boilers, ovens, kilns or areas that lack air flow can contribute to heat stress. The environmental hazard coupled with the need to wear proper PPE all contribute to the added hazard of heat stress for the worker.

Confined Space Safety

Another environmental hazard is the weather. Rain and lightning are examples that may trigger the removal of all entrants from the confined space or the cancellation of a permit. Working in a space that is prone to filling with storm water may be a hazard from rain events several miles upstream. Lightning is a real hazard. For example, working an entry in a tank that previously contained a flammable substance creates an additional hazard that would prohibit entry during a forecasted lightning event.

Stand by Rescue

Off-site rescue service or EMS responders may satisfy the regulatory requirement for rescues but often present significant disadvantages of unrealistic response times. The response time is a collection of factors. Drive time alone is not a reliable, primary factor in determining timing for rescue respondents. The other factors include the attendant recognizing that there is an issue, equipment or gear loading and availability. The initial call out to the rescue team, calling medical teams, initial evaluation, planning the rescue, utilizing PPE and the rescue attempt itself will also factor into response times. Reducing any of these variables can improve the chances of a successful rescue. The collective of these steps can often make calculating a response time very difficult task and essentially an unreliable determination. An on-site, well-trained TAS stand by rescue team will help to eliminate many unknown variables. On-site, prepared and undistracted standby teams minimize response time failure and ensure timely action. TAS Environmental Services, L.P. employs highly skilled EH&S Staff to monitor Confined Space Rescue (CSR) training and on-going education. Our teams are trained on both CSR and CSE. We also train staff on CPR and First Aid in addition to 40 Hour hazwoper training. We can mobilize 24/7/365 to help minimize risk and maximize safety QC when Confined Space Entry (CSE) is necessary. Call us at 888.654.0111 for assistance.

Making Hazardous Waste Regulations Work for Today’s Marketplace

Re-Posted from EPA Connect | Story by Mathy Stanislaus 

The pace of technology and change in the modern world can be dizzying. As new medicines and treatments are developed, new types of waste emerge. However, our hazardous waste generator regulations were written in the 1980s and haven’t changed much over the years.
Well, today we’re taking steps toward changing that. I’m excited to announce that we are proposing two rules to provide businesses with the certainty and flexibility they need to successfully operate in today’s marketplace.

Over the last 35 years, we’ve heard from states and the regulated community that our hazardous waste generator regulations, which were designed for manufacturing, don’t fit all sectors and especially not the healthcare sector. We’ve listened and these two proposals make a number of updates and improvements to the existing regulations. We have proposed over 60 changes to the regulations to improve the effectiveness of and compliance with the hazardous waste generator program. This includes rearranging some of the generator regulations that had outgrown their original numbering system so it will be easier for facilities of all sizes that generate hazardous waste to find everything they need to know in one place.

The second rule will make it easier for healthcare providers to comply with hazardous waste rules while protecting the nation’s water. We’re proposing to remove the traditional manufacturing-based hazardous waste generator requirements and instead provide a new set of regulations designed to be workable in a healthcare setting while ensuring safe management and disposal of hazardous waste pharmaceuticals. The primary focus for nurses, doctors and pharmacists is providing healthcare – they are not experts in hazardous waste identification and management. This rule seeks to reduce the burden and increase compliance by proposing a more flexible, common sense approach for healthcare providers and the elimination of unnecessary management practices.

Pharmaceuticals entering the environment, through flushing or other means, are having a negative effect on aquatic ecosystems and on fish and animal populations. Our proposal is keeping pace with today’s environmental issues by banning the sewering, or flushing down the toilet or sink, of hazardous waste pharmaceuticals from healthcare facilities. It is projected to prevent the flushing of more than 6,400 tons of hazardous waste pharmaceuticals annually making our drinking water safer.

In order to keep our world safe and healthy, regulations should not only effectively manage sources of environmental harm, but also be flexible and clear enough for newcomers to understand. The updates and tailoring of the hazardous waste generator regulations by these two proposed rules increases compliance, which then increases environmental benefit. The new rules respond to the needs of both the environment and businesses, benefitting both sides.

Our proposals will be available for public comment online in the coming weeks once they are published in the Federal Register. We’d love to hear your thoughts. To review these proposed rules now, visit:
