Permit Required Confined Space Serious Injury & Fatality Detection and Solutions

From 2011 to 2018, 1,030 workers died from occupational injuries involving a confined space. Trench collapses led to the deaths of 168 workers, falls to a lower level accounted for 156 deaths, and there were 126 deaths due to inhalation of a harmful substance over the 8-year period. Many different occupations work in and around confined spaces.  The three occupations with the largest number of fatalities involving confined spaces during this period were construction laborers; farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural managers; and front-line supervisors of construction trades and extraction workers.
