Confined spaces such as manure tanks can pose an extreme danger to those who enter them. A manure tank may contain toxic gases and an atmosphere so low in oxygen that the air is not safe to breathe.

Though the hazards associated with confined spaces may be invisible, they can be deadly for those who enter without proper training, equipment, and procedures in place.
