Confined Space Hazard Assessment Template


Download and use this confined space risk assessment to identify and isolate hazards. There are different risks associated with the different types of confined space work, so it’s essential you walk through every checkpoint, as some have more than one hazard. Below, are a couple of examples of the types of checkpoints you’ll encounter in this template:

  • • Authorized entry points
  • Permit to work
  • • Explosive atmosphere
  • • Combustible materials
  • • Electrical circuits
  • • Toxic gasses
  • • Toxic material
  • • Thermal hazards
  • • Dangerous machinery

Ventilation Requirements

Space volume in cubic feet

Natural circulation - no atmospheric hazards in place. Additional ventilation may be required for worker comfort, hot work, grinding, or other operations that would produce airborne fumes, mist or dust. Entry Supervisor must assess additional ventilation requirements based on tasks to be performed in the space prior to time of entry.

Ventilation Formulas and Requirements

20 Air Changes per Hour. (ACH) required for duration of entry. 20 ACH = space volume x 20

Adequate Blower Capacity (ABC). ABC = space volume x 20 ACH, divided by 60 minutes.

Initial Purge Time. 7.5 x space volume, divided by effective blower capacity.
