Correct answer is:
  • (E)  A space that is designed for continuous employee occupancy

OSHA defines a confined space as one that: (1) Is big enough and configured in a way that allows an employee to physically enter and perform the assigned work; and (2) has restricted or limited ways to enter or exit (for example, vessels, vaults, storage bins, tanks, hoppers, pits, and silos are spaces that may have insufficient means of entry); and (3) is not made for continuous occupancy.
