The definition of a confined space in the regulations for industrial establishments differs from
and could be more restrictive than the definition in the regulations for construction projects.
Use the definition that corresponds to the type of work being done.

If work comes under one of the two regulations listed below, then a confined space is defined
as:


            Industrial Regulations
            a space in which, because of its construction, location, contents or work activity
            therein, the accumulation of a hazardous gas, vapour, dust or fumes or the creation of
            an oxygen-deficient atmosphere may occur.


            Construction Regulations
            a space to which or from which access or egress is restricted and in which, because of
            its construction, location or contents, or the work activity therein, hazardous gas,
            vapour, dust or fumes, or an oxygen-deficient atmosphere may occur.

                                to be defective, the gloves must NOT be used;

                     c)         Leather covers must be examined for rips and wood or metal splinters
                                before use (handling steel cables is especially bad for picking up metal
                                slivers);

                     d)         Covers that will not provide protection for rubber gloves must NOT be used;

209      CLEARANCE FROM ENERGIZED APPARATUS

         1.   “Limits of approach” is a procedural barrier intended to minimize the risk
              associated with work in the vicinity of live electrical apparatus. When working in
              the vicinity of exposed live electrical apparatus, both people and equipment must
              maintain specific limits if they are to work safely.

         2.   The limits specified in Tables 1 and 2 are the minimum requirements.

         3.   The type of work and conditions under which it will be done must be taken into
              consideration when establishing minimum clearances for safety.

         4.   To obtain the safest work environment, all workers must maintain maximum
              clearance and install barriers where practical.

         The following definitions are made for the purpose of this Rule:


         Construction Type Equipment:
         Cranes (with or without baskets), vehicle mounted cranes (i.e., Hiab type), power
         shovels, backhoes and mechanical brush cutters.


         Certified Insulated Aerial Device:
         An aerial device that is certified by electrical research and tested on a regular basis.

                     risk, line management must establish approved procedures to guard against falls.

            4.       Fall protection equipment, which has been involved in arresting an actual fall,
                     must NOT be used again until it has been recertified.

            NOTE: Equipment intended for one-time use only, such as lifelines and shock
            absorbers, once used to arrest a fall will be quarantined and not reused.
            Equipment such as retractable lifelines will be quarantined and recertified.

         5.   Anchor points:

              a)   Permanent anchor points must be designed and installed in accordance
                   with the building code.

              b)   Temporary anchor points used for fall arrest systems must be capable of
                   withstanding 8 KN (1,800 lbs. force).

              c)   Temporary anchor points used for fall restraint systems must be capable of
                   withstanding 2 KN (450 lbs. force).

         6.   Fall arrest system shall be arranged so that a worker cannot hit the ground or an
              object or level below the work.

         7.   Lifelines must be attached to anchor points independent of the primary load line.
              That is, suspended platforms must have a second independent means of support
              for each person on the device. When a horizontal lifeline is used, more than one
              lifeline can be anchored to it if it is designed for this purpose.

         8.   In a fall arrest system where lifelines are used, they must be located so as to
              prevent damage from chafing, burns and sharp edges.

         9.   A rescue plan is mandatory wherever fall arrest systems are used.

         10. All users of fall protection equipment must be competent.

         11. No unapproved modifications are allowed to fall arresting equipment.

700         FIRE SAFETY

            1.       All workplaces must comply with the applicable fire codes and standards such as
                     National Fire Code of Canada, CSA-N293 (specific to the generating stations) as
                     a minimum, and due to the nature of business, following other standards of
                     "industry best practice" which meet or exceed those documents is a Bruce Power
                     expectation.

            NOTE: This section contains references to specific Bruce Power documents
            related to fire safety, available electronically on our database. These
            documents are electronically linked to the most recent revision and will link to
            any superceding documents.

                     At times, it may be necessary to deal with situations which impair some fire
                     safety features. These issues can be addressed by referring to DPT-EM-00006,
                     Fire Protection Surveillance, Availability and Compensatory Measures,
                     DPT-EM-00007, Fire Protection Impairment Control.

                     Where guidance is required on a fire safety concern, the department responsible
                     for fire safety programs shall be consulted.

            2.       All workplaces must have a written fire safety program which covers the following
                     topics:

                     Emergency fire plans and drills; inspections; training of people who are
                     responsible for inspecting the fire safety system (e.g., sprinklers, detectors,
                     extinguishers and signs) and equipment; training of all workers in fire prevention
                     and firefighting as appropriate; and a mechanism for reviewing the fire safety
                     system in the event of an occupancy or process change.




                                                                                                          Master PDF Created: 28Feb2005 12:19

              how to address specific issues.

              In workplaces with fewer than 10 workers, the fire safety program can be
              communicated orally.

         3.   All workers must familiarize themselves with the location and use of fire
              extinguishing equipment in their workplace and on vehicles.

         4.   Every fire incident and gaseous explosion must be reported within 48 hours.

         5.   All means of egress and fire access routes must be properly designated and
              signed, and kept free of any obstructions at all times.

         6.   All fire equipment must be kept free from obstruction, and be clearly visible at all
              times. Fire safety equipment must be conspicuously located where it will be
              readily accessible and immediately available in the event of a fire. It must be
              located along normal paths of travel, including exits from an area.

         7.   Doors in fire separations must not be blocked or wedged open and must be
              checked as frequently as necessary to ensure they remain closed, unless
              equipment is installed to close the door(s) automatically.

         8.   A minimum clearance of two feet must be maintained for all overhead fire
              detectors and suppression system sprinkler heads.

            5.       All battery rooms must be suitably ventilated to minimize the chance of
                     hazardous gas accumulation.

            6.       Do not use plastic sheets as a drop cover over batteries, since this may result in
                     moisture or hydrogen gas build up and static charge hazards.

            7.       Suitable emergency response equipment, including eye wash station(s), must be
                     maintained in or near all battery rooms.

            8.       With the exception of visual inspections, no one must work alone in a battery
                     room.

            NOTE: Where the room is partitioned, only the part of a room containing the
            batteries is considered the battery room.


            Drycell Batteries
            1. Never short the two poles of a battery together.

            2.       Ensure all waste batteries are disposed of in an appropriate manner. Dry cell

            5.       Repairs to any gasoline or associated product storage containers or fuel tanks
                     must be conducted using approved work procedures under the surveillance of a
                     qualified person.

            6.       Gasoline must NOT be used for cleaning.

            7.       Use only approved safety cans equipped with a spring loaded cap and flame
                     arrestor for the storage and dispensing of flammable liquids.

706         TRANSPORTATION OF FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS TO AND FROM THE
            WORKPLACE

            Sealed containers must be used to transport flammable liquids to and from the
            workplace.

            NOTE: A safety can is NOT a sealed container and is NOT suitable for
            transportation of flammable liquids in enclosed vehicles, unless specifically
            approved as a "transport and dispensing safety can".

707         DISPENSING OF FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS

            When dispensing flammable liquids, grounding and bonding cables must be used (see
            illustration).

            NOTE: All ground connections must be made with screw type connectors or
            hardened steel tip spring loaded connectors to assure metal to metal contact
            through rust and/or paints. All bond cables must be equipped with hardened
            steel tip spring loaded connectors, or if alligator-type clips are used, special
            care must be taken to ensure that bare metal areas are prepared at all bonding
            points before connections are made.

              c)   Placed where they may become part of an electric circuit;

              d)   Subjected to temperatures higher than 50°C (122°F); or

              e)   Placed in traffic routes, whether for vehicles or personnel.

         6.   Storage of cylinders must be in specifically designed areas and not in
              conventional storage areas or rooms, or in workshops.

         7.   Empty cylinders must be treated as full cylinders, but are to be stored in an area
              segregated from full cylinders. All empty cylinders must be marked "EMPTY" or
              "MT."

         8.   All workers must verify that the correct gas is being used before connecting a
              compressed gas cylinder to a system.

         9.   Leaking oxygen or fuel gas cylinders are dangerous and must be taken out of
              service immediately. The cylinders must be transported to an isolated, well-
              vented outdoor location and valves opened slightly to allow gas to escape.
              Obvious warning signs must be posted to prohibit smoking and open flames in
              the area. When emptied, the faulty cylinder must be tagged as "DEFECTIVE"
              and promptly returned to the supplier for repair.

         10. Safety plugs in acetylene cylinders melt at 100°C. Frozen valves must not be
             thawed with hot water or a flame, but may be thawed with warm water.

         11. Do not use lubricants on cylinder fittings.

            Cylinders In Confined Spaces
            When welding or cutting is to be done in a tank or other unventilated space, the
            cylinders should be kept outside the space. If it is imperative to take the cylinders into
            the confined space, then they must be removed immediately when work is completed.

709         TRANSPORTATION OF COMPRESSED GASES

            NOTE: Propane cylinders having a capacity of less than 2 kg may be
            transported within a vehicle, providing the cylinder is stored within an enclosed
            metal cabinet or container.

            1.       With the exception of those cylinders containing less than 2 kg of propane,
                     compressed gas cylinders being carried in or on vehicles must be in the upright
                     or vertical position, be properly secured to prevent damage, and have the valve
                     protection cap securely in place if allowance is made for one.

            2.       Cylinders with flammable contents must be transported outside the passenger
                     compartment of a vehicle or in metal cabinets that are vapour tight and secured
                     to the inside of the vehicle or other vehicle compartments. Cabinets must be
                     equipped with a minimum 100 cm vent at ceiling and floor level. Care must be
                     taken to ensure that vents terminate at a point outside of the vehicle and away
                     from any source of ignition on the vehicle.

              chemical extinguisher located so as to be readily accessible but not immediately
              adjacent to the compressed gas cylinder.

710      STORAGE OF COMPRESSED GASES


         General
         1. Flammable compressed gases (e.g., propane) must be segregated from other
            types of flammable gases (e.g., hydrogen, acetylene) or oxidizers (e.g. oxygen-
            chlorine) by a distance of 8 metres or by a masonry or cement block wall at least
            1.5 metres high as is required to top the tallest cylinder.

         2.   Cylinders of compressed gases must be protected against mechanical damage
              and must be stored on racks or by using other devices designed to hold them in
              place.


         Outdoor Storage
         1. Compressed gas cylinders stored outdoors must be firmly supported on a raised
             concrete platform and be protected from the weather by a non-combustible
             canopy.

         2.   Cylinders containing compressed gases that are outdoors must be located away
              from any building openings as listed in the following table.

         1.   Approved hearing protection must be worn when entering an area marked as
              either having a noise level above 85 dBA or noises in excess of 100 dBA.

         2.   Noise must be managed in accordance with the Bruce Power Noise Control and
              Hearing Conservation Program, specifically:

              a)   Measure noise levels throughout the workplace and post warning signs in
                   areas and on equipment where the noise level exceeds 85 dBA or 100 dBA.
                   These tests are to be repeated every three years or sooner if conditions
                   have changed.

              b)   For individuals working in areas where noise levels exceed 85 dBA, perform
                   noise dosimetry. If the noise exposure level exceeds 85 dBA, workers
                   should be enrolled in the hearing conservation program in accordance with
                   Bruce Power procedures.

              c)   Ensure that regular employees who are noise exposed have periodic
                   hearing tests.

              d)   Use engineering controls where practical to reduce noise levels.

              e)   Consider noise levels in the purchase of new equipment.
