Confined Space Safety
Avoiding Deadly Consequences
Many workplaces contain areas that OSHA and MSHA consider “confined spaces” – but supervisors may not be aware of what standards are required to maintain workplace safety and health.
Confined spaces are not necessarily designed for people, but they’re large enough for workers to enter and perform certain jobs. Examples include: tanks, vessels, silos, storage bins, hoppers, vaults, pits, manholes, tunnels, equipment housings, ductwork, pipelines, and more – and it’s likely that you encounter at least one of these spaces on the job regularly.
And that’s not including OSHA’s “permit-required confined spaces” – applicable to confined spaces with additional dangerous characteristics.
When fatalities occur in confined spaces, often multiple victims are affected. Sometimes it’s by health hazards such as oxygen depletion, and other times it’s engulfment or other physical hazards.
That’s why it’s crucial to keep your employees safe and protected when working in confined spaces.
This session will explain the applicable rules, OSHA/MSHA policy, and best practices to protect workers and avoid costly penalties.
Join us to learn:
- Differences between general industry & construction rules for confined space entry
- What the main physical and health hazards are related to confined spaces
- What training and programs are required for entry into permit-required spaces
- How to address confined space rescue and coordinate with third party responders
- And more!
