confined space raffle

Enter the Confined Space Raffle!

UT Austin is requesting your assistance in identifying confined spaces throughout campus. UT Austin has an existing database and inventory of manholes and although these are confined spaces, they will be excluded from this raffle.

Please submit a confined space location (non-manholes) that meets the definition below.

- Large enough for a person to enter and do work
- Restricted means of entry and exit
- Not designed for continuous occupancy

Submitted locations will be field verified by EHS. Each submission meeting the definition listed above will count as one entry into the drawing. You may submit as many different locations as you wish. Please be as descriptive of the location as possible. DO NOT ENTER A CONFINED SPACE UNLESS PROPERLY TRAINED.

A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the submitter once it has been verified as a confined space. The last day to submit locations will be on Monday, April 2, 2018.

A winner will be chosen at random and will receive a $50 Cabela's gift card.
