Confined spaces pose dangers because they are usually not designed to be areas where people work. Confined spaces often have poor ventilation which allows hazardous atmospheres to quickly develop, especially if the space is small. The hazards are not always obvious and may change from one entry into the confined space to the next.
The risks of working in confined spaces can include, loss of consciousness due to the immediate effects of airborne contaminants, and fire or explosion from the ignition of flammable contaminants.
