Hi all,

Quick question. Does anyone here have any insight into gas monitoring for confined space entry? We are building up our safety program and have had others mention a 4 gas detector. We will not be entering any permit confined spaces ourselves as we do not have a welder qualified to do so. I know that we would have to inform a contractor doing that kind of work about our confined space protocol, but would they be responsible for gas monitoring?

Cheers

I reached out to the SHARP folks, they were just in last week. I'd give them a call:

As it is, It's my understanding that with a 4 gas meter (as well as being able to meet the other requirements for PRCS entry) you could issue the permit to a contractor, else, they would have to be Confined Space trained in order to issue it themselves.

My .02, and it's not worth even that.

Thanks for the input. I actually have a meeting with them next. Probably a good place to ask.

Much appreciated
