The written record is the primary source for acquiring information about confined space incidents. These records contain supposedly factual information, including location, date, time, victim’s age and gender, and a narrative summary. The narrative summary can provide additional specific and interpretive information. Interpretive information requires the application of skill and broad-spectrum knowledge about the circumstances of work. Thus, such information necessarily receives the lowest level of confidence.
With care in the manner of performing this inquiry, this information can provide the basis for identifying trends in these events. Also, working on statistical and stochastic data is an important means of transforming data into information, information into knowledge and knowledge into action.
