Risk management pocket guide
Entry into enclosed spaces: freight containers
The dangers of enclosed spaces are universal and are widely found in work activities. The two main concerns are lack of oxygen and presence of harmful gases or vapours.
In this pocket card, ICHCA International and the TT Club have addressed the very practical issue of entry into freight containers that can present a danger to port workers and others who may be required to enter them during their work. The dangers, together with examples, are given and the necessary precautions that will ensure safety are specified.
