It is generally accepted that the definition of ‘an enclosed space' is a space which has limited openings for entry and exit and is not intended for continuous worker occupancy which inevitably leads to them being hazardous environments.
In Working in Enclosed Spaces Adam Allan and Capt Michael Lloyd have written a technical reference for Surveyor personnel involved in entering enclosed spaces for inspection purposes.

Some thoughts on enclosed spaces

Many years ago, fire was the biggest cause of death and injury at sea. Eventually, through legislation, compulsory training & equipment, and improvements to ship design, casualty numbers were drastically reduced.

Fire is, of course, a potentially serious on-going problem and it is essential that such safeguards are in place, but you can see it, you can feel it, and to a certain extent dependant on the fire, there is an element of time to deal with it, especially with the compulsory training and modern equipment, both automated and manual, available to the ships.

But what about enclosed spaces?

While many accidents in enclosed spaces are caused by a variety of reasons, the biggest killer, by far, is the lack of breathable air. This can't be seen, rarely detected by smell, and never felt until it is too late. If the lack is severe, one second you are alive, the next unconscious and dead.
