The safety of the employees in the workplace will always remain an important topic. Especially confined space entry can lead to many unnecessary injuries and can even be lethal. Below you will find some common questions regarding our Light Duty Barrier and answers thereof.
What is a Confined Space?
These spaces are not designed for people but are used by them to conduct certain work. These spaces can be dangerous without a manhole barrier and can cause many accidents with serious consequences. A manhole in space of work can be utterly dangerous, and can lead to many unwanted accidents. That is why there are many types of manhole barricades and other warning signs to keep personnel out. Some of these spaces can contain a hazardous atmosphere or has converging walls for example.
Why use Barriers?
Manhole barriers and other types of entrance barrier are common to use when there are confined spaces at the workplace. An entry barrier can work as a manhole gate which can help to warn, signal and keep out unauthorized employees. There are different types of barriers for the different types of situations.
