QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Safety In Confined Spaces

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Safety In Confined Spaces | Facility Executive - Creating Intelligent Buildings

Q. According to a December 2005 post featured on FacilityBlog, ANSI Standard Z117.1-2003 “covers confined space requirements with regard to identification and evaluation of a confined space, emergency response and rescue, permit and non-permit requirements, atmospheric testing, isolation and decontamination, lockout/tagout safeguarding procedures, personal protection equipment (PPE), and warning sign requirements.”

What are the equivalents to this confined space standard for the European Union, Canada, Asia, or any other region of the world?
