We've talked about one of the two classifications of confined space hazards, atmospheric hazards. The other major type of hazard found in confined spaces is physical hazards.
Physical hazards can be considered as hazards that cause the body to become physically stressed. Unlike atmospheric hazards, physical hazards can be detected through your senses of (touch, sight).
Some examples of physical hazards are:
Now that you have a background on the types of hazards that can be found in confined spaces, let's learn how to determine if a certain work area would be considered a confined space.
