Topic of Lecture: Research on Reasons and Preventions of the confined space accidents


Abstract: Confined spaces exist in many workplaces. There may be a variety of occupational hazards in confined spaces. Including atmospheric hazards (i.e., poisoning, asphyxiation, explosion), as well as biological, physical (e.g., mechanical, electrical, engulfment, falling) . It is difficult to identify and manage the hazards in confined spaces, which has resulted in innumerable fatalities and injuries. 

The purpose of this study is to discover the characteristics of limited space accidents and analysis of the causes and problems of the accident in management process, hazard identification, hazard control, emergency rescue and other aspects. The research team collected and analyzed 60 accidents from 2014 to 2015 in China and put forward control measures and countermeasures to prevent confined space accidents.
