Confined Space Assessment

Any work required in an area deemed to be a confined space will be a contracted service.  Bids for contracts must specify that the bidder will furnish a copy of their Confined Space Program and all necessary documentation that the individuals to be working in the area have received the proper training.   A copy of this information should be forwarded to the Environmental Health & Safety Office for record retention.

In accordance with a campus-wide survey of the University of Louisiana at Monroe by the Environmental Health & Safety Office, no areas were discovered which meet the guidelines of the OSHA "Permit Required" Confined Space.  However, the area accessed through the basement under Brown Hall and the Brown Auditorium stage pit have been identified as likely to be hazardous if entered.

Additionally, all elevator pits are considered confined spaces and no ULM employees will enter or work in them at any time for any reason.
