Confined Space

There are numerous confined spaces (pits, manholes, tanks, etc.) on Purdue University's campuses. Many are added during new construction and renovations. If your job requires you to enter a confined space, you must follow certain procedures to ensure your safety. The policy, guidelines and procedures can be found in the Purdue University Confined Space Program. If you and/or your group need to know more, contact REM Industrial Hygiene.
