Do the oilfields contain confined spaces?
The oilfields around Midland can contain some confined spaces. Consider the possible confined spaces that may be on a drilling rig: you have pits, mud tanks, and other areas in and around the derrick. In a drilling rig confined space we must be concerned about hazards particular to the drilling operation. On a drilling operation we have many moving parts such as mixing mechanisms and rapid, high-pressure flow changes. There are also pumps and motors that are stopping and starting on short notice. All oilfield workers need confined space training to recognize and avoid these hazards so that they can go home alive and safe each and every day.
Also consider the possibility of working with confined spaces in a frac site. On a frac site you must be aware of frac tanks, blenders, and cellars. These areas are confined spaces and can have the enhanced risk from those on the frac site. At a frac site we must contend with risk from noise, gasses, dusts, and high pressure releases. Frac workers should be receiving confined space training in Midland to help them find their way safely on the frac job.
Confined Space Training is Crucial for Midland
Confined spaces can be described as a hazard multiplier for several reasons. When gasses are released at the surface then they will tend to disperse naturally. Even a slight breeze can quickly clear gasses from an area. In a confined space then toxic gasses may stay trapped without adequate ventilation. Also consider a worker overcome by toxic gas at the surface, they may be rescued as soon as the gas is cleared. A worker overwhelmed by gas in a confined space, however, may be far more difficult to remove. The rescuers would have to use supplied air combined with difficult high angle rescue techniques.
