Confined Space Entry

Kennesaw State University (KSU) has numerous spaces which are categorized as Enclosed, Confined, and Permit Required Confined Spaces. Some more hazardous than others, but hazardous nonetheless; therefore, KSU requires entry to any of such spaces to be made only by trained “Authorized Persons” exercising extreme caution, and with the application of effective hazard assessment procedures that are consistent with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.146. Those spaces evaluated and deemed “Permit Required Confined Space” shall not be entered until an approved Confined Space Permit has been signed and posted as outlined in the KSU Confined Space Policy and Procedures and effective rescue team(s) are in place.
