I know we talked about a lot of things at our Presidents Day Seminar, but I wanted to make sure to remind everyone about confined space entry.

Septic drivers are the ones who would generally come into contact with confined spaces, but everyone needs to know what this means to them.

Examples of confined spaces would be manholes, septic tanks, and even the tanks on our trucks. These are places that you would normally never enter or probably even think about entering, but at some point someone could ask you to enter, usually to help them repair something.

Never, ever do that! Do not ever enter or let someone enter a confined space. Period.

Every day in America someone dies from the lack of oxygen in a space that they thought it was safe to enter. If the thought ever crosses your mind, think about what your loved ones would do without you. Think before you act!
