The plate is attached to a manhole cover and, in my mind, is a little unnecessary. I’m not a very smart man but even I could tell that this was a tight fit for anyone who might remove the lid and enter this underground hole. It wasn’t too hard to see that this is a confined space. But thankfully, the sign helped me understand that I need to seek permission to enter.
Or was the sign telling me that to have a permit is required to HAVE a confined space?
So it isn’t so clear after all.
Either way, I have yet to determine what government agency provides a permit allowing one have or enter confined spaces. I should take some time to determine where I can pick up one of these permits. I might want to enter a confined space one day and don’t want to be caught unprepared. Worse still, I might find that I HAVE a confined space and am no longer compliant with local regulations.
I’m all about the rules.
