Title: Classification of Confined Spaces in Giad Industrial Area
Author: Ali, Mahgoub Hussein Idris
Abstract: The objectives of the study involve highlighting and diagnosing the hazards resultant from confined spaces in the, recently established Giad industrial City. Moreover, it aims at identifying and determining those locations whose entry requires special permit and, finally suggesting methods for minimizing the potential hazards in the study area. The Gas Alert Micro detector, a mobile highly sensitive detector, was used for measuring atmospheric concentrations of those gases of potential existence in the identified confined spaces. The results obtained revealed that no increase or decrease in the quantities of Oxygen, Carbon Monoxide or Hydrogen Sulfide. However, in some of the storage tanks the oxygen is below the standard level of 19.5 % which imply that special permit has to be issued for entering those locations. An important recommendation of the study is to formulate a comprehensive plan for confined spaces safety within Giad City. This will include also conducting a hazcom study to ensure that all employees working in or around these confined spaces will be aware of the potential hazards.
