Many different accessories are available to complete a confined space davit and hoist system. When your workplace includes a confined space, fall protection is imperative and having a complete system requires the right accessories.
OSHA has written a definition of a confined space that is part of a workplace; it is not designed for people yet it is large enough for workers to enter, perform certain tasks, and exit. A confined space is not designed for continuous occupancy and has limited or restricted means for entry and egress.
Workplaces that are confined spaces include, but are not limited to, manholes, tanks, and tunnels. These situations can be found in construction, maintenance, and rescue operations and are considered to be extremely dangerous. Without proper fall protection systems in place, there is potential for personal injury and even loss of life.
It is imperative to ensure that your fall protection systems are complete and suited to your specific worksite. Equipment such as davits, hoists, and lifeline pulleys are essential in preventing accidents and recovering from accidents if they occur. Part of a complete fall protection system for confined spaces will include having proper accessories that amend and adapt the equipment for the requirements of the job.
