Where the preliminary assessment has determined that there is potential for flammable gases or vapours, the concentration of those gases or vapours is not higher than 1% of their lower flammable limit (LFL), measured using a suitably sensitive combustible gas indicator.
The concentration of any toxic vapours and gases is not higher than 50% of their occupational exposure limit (OEL)
C. SAFE FOR MAN ENTRY / CONFINED SPACE
