Covers Meet Confined Space Standards

TUESDAY, MAY 12, 2015

MILWAUKEE—New covers are designed to alert employees to, and protect them from, the dangers of confined spaces, says manufacturer Master Lock Safety Solutions.

The Confined Space Covers exceed Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards for permit-required confined spaces by providing required signage and effective barrier protection, according to the company.

Three models are available:

  • S201CS is elastic and non-lockable;
  • S202CS is ventilated and lockable; and
  • S203CS is solid and lockable.

Three models of confined-space covers come in four sizes to fit 20- to 39-inch standard manways.

The covers are manufactured from UV-treated polyester or silicone-coated fiberglass materials and are easily cleaned and stored, the company says.
