Space Rescue Lack of Oxygen

A lack of oxygen is a risk in steel tanks when rust forms, in cargo containers or when reactions in an atmosphere occur

Back to other hazards...
 

It’s not always instantly known when oxygen levels start to fall towards very low levels. This can happen in any enclosed environment and is more acute when working below ground level.

If an operator starts to slow down or become unstable a lack of oxygen may be a present threat. In this scenario, it is important to act fast for a complete and rapid recovery.
