The utility distribution tunnel systems are an essential component of urban infrastructure that continuously supply the public and private sectors with vital services such as electricity, steam, sewer, and cables used for internet and security systems. Since the utility tunnels and associated services require a great deal of maintenance and repair, an assortment of personnel is required to access and enter manholes and tunnels on a regular basis. Safety and industrial hygiene professionals play a vital role in the protection of workers and professionals entering the utility tunnels which inherently creates a hazardous work environment. The purpose of this webinar is to provide a brief overview of what hazards exist, why they exist, their overall impact on the safety of personnel entering the utility distribution tunnel systems, and explore safety and industrial hygiene mitigation processes and procedures.

This webinar is a 1-hour lecture and 30 minutes of Q&A.
