Now let's talk about how to manage and control hazards. First warning signs and vary protection like the one seen here are place around the confined space entrance to protect those on the outside and those on the inside. The second control measure is atmospheric testing, the proper testing of the atmosphere inside the confined space using appropriately calibrated monitors and detectors determines whether respirators or self contained breathing apparatuses will be needed or if its typical ventilation protocol will suffice. Either way before anyone entrance the space, the atmosphere inside the space is tested. Oxygen levels, flammable gases, and toxic vapors and must be tested specifically in that order. What's more, the site must continue to be tested at regular intervals as long as the space is occupied.
