Confined Spaces (English)
Construction workers sometimes perform work in confined space – work areas that are enclosed and have a restricted means of entry or exit that may present dangerous and hazardous conditions not found in other, normal work areas. Failure to understand the hazards of confined spaces can lead to death or serious injury.
Seguridad de Espacios Confinados (Confined Spaces in Spanish)
En ocasiones, los trabajadores de la construcción realizan labores en espacios confinados,áreas de trabajo cerradas que tienen un medio restringido de entrada o salida y pueden presentar condiciones peligrosas que no se encuentran otras áreas de trabajo normales. No entender los peligros de los espacios confinados puede resultar en lesiones graves o en la muerte.
