Confined space equipment ensures that workers safely complete tasks in confined spaces. It includes adaptable handrails, manhole collars and manhole guards. Adaptable handrails attach to manholes to make entrances and exits easier and safer. Manhole guards provide a highly visible barricade to prevent accidents. Manhole collars are placed inside a manhole and provide a portable base for a mast and davit arm. A hook attached to the davit arm fastens to a worker's harness and allows emergency retrieval from the manhole.
