Alberta Occupational Health & Safety Code defines a confined space as a restricted space that may become hazardous to a worker entering it because of
a) An atmosphere that is or may be injurious by reason of oxygen deficiency or enrichment, flammability, explosivity or toxicity
b) A condition or changing set of circumstances within that space that presents a potential for injury or illness
c) The potential or inherent characteristics of an activity which can produce adverse or harmful consequences within the space.
Confined spaces present special hazards to workers including risks of toxic or asphyxiant gas exposure, fires, falls and entrapment. Workers need to remain aware of these potential hazards and how to avoid or control them in their day to day work activity.
