Cellars and CO2 Dangers

Confined spaces are unsafe places!

In the drinks industry, this includes cellars.

Cellars can look harmless enough, but toxic CO2 gas can make them deadly for drinks industry workers. Heavier than air, CO2 gathers in low-lying places like cellars.

Cellars are often classified as confined space, where leaks of any gas are particularly hazardous.  Statistics show that too many people still do not understand the risks that confined spaces pose.

Despite regulations regarding confined spaces and exposure to CO2, people working in cellars still die. These deaths could be prevented with some simple precautions.
