Permit System

Add a note hereBefore entry, a permit system has to be developed to ensure that the space is safe to enter and entrants, attendants, and the supervisor are prepared. A designated and trained entry supervisor must authorize the entry, prepare and sign written permits, order corrective measures if necessary, and cancel permits when work is completed. Permits must be available to all permit space entrants at the time of entry and should extend only for the duration of the task. Cancelled permits have to be retained for a year to use in a review of the confined space program.
