Areas that are considered confined space entry because their configurations hinder the activities of any employees who must enter, work in, and exit them. Employees who work in confined space entry areas generally must squeeze in and out through narrow openings and perform their tasks while cramped or contorted. Employees who work in these tight environments face increased risk of exposure to serious hazards. The area itself poses entrapment hazards such as asphyxiating atmospheres or the moving parts of machinery. OSHA uses the term confined space entry to describe such areas.

Lockout tagout procedures are the use of a special system to prevent power from being accidentally turned on during equipment maintenance or repair. These lockout tagout procedures may be electrical or other power such as hydraulic power, compressed air or coiled springs. In lockout tagout procedures you will need to disconnect switches, circuit breakers or other energy-isolating mechanisms and put it in the safe 'off' position. A device is often placed over the energy-isolating mechanism to hold it in the safe off position, and attachments protect the equipment from being turned on. Each year, many workers are injured or killed by the uncontrolled release of hazardous energy. Many of these types of accidents could have been prevented by proper lockout tagout procedures.
