Abby Holovach with Holt Cat presents "Tales from the Crypt - A


Collection of Confined Space Case Studies & Lessons Learned"


A welder in Arizona succumbs to asphyxia after entering a stainless-steel pipe. Two workers die and five are seriously injured at a sawmill during a backflow inspection. Three Florida contractors perish in a manhole.

What do these three devastatingly-familiar stories have in common? All were completely-preventable confined space-related deaths. Confined spaces pose one of the most deceptive workplace hazards due to their seemingly-benign appearance, when in reality, they can potentially be a death trap. This presentation will delve into the details of each haunting story to better understand what went wrong and what could have been done differently to prevent the fatalities. Along with a helpful CSE Risk Identification checklist and a few other CSE risk identification tools, attendees will leave the presentation with the ability to define and recognize confined spaces, tools to identify and understand the unique risks posed by confined spaces, and how to determine the “worst-case scenario” for effective risk mitigation. This is an interactive presentation, relying on audience engagement and participation.

Abby is a passionate EHS professional with diverse experience in state and federal environmental regulations, hazmat and waste management, emergency spill response, and EHS regulatory management and implementation. She is currently Holt Cat’s Environmental Compliance Manager, and previous roles include TCEQ Environmental Investigator, EHS & Waste Director at a hazmat spill response company, and Environmental Program Manager at a joint reserve military base. She is also the founder/owner of Vibe Environmental, providing environmental compliance assistance/support & trainings. Outside of work, she enjoys lattes, long naps, and the company of her critters & family.
