Please join us in October 2015 for OSHA’s New Confined Space Entry Requirements Workshop as Gary Glader, President of Horton Safety Consultants, presents information on this new standard. This seminar is for construction firms, general contractors, and facility owners and managers.

Recently, OSHA issued a final rule that now regulates confined spaces in construction. The new requirement become effective, and enforceable, on August 3, 2015. The new standard includes requirements for facility owners and managers as well as those in the construction industry.

Failure to address the potential hazards associated with entry into confined spaces often results in death to more than one worker. It is anticipated the agency will enforce the requirements of this standard as they have enforced fall protection, power line safety, and excavation safety. Participants will learn the following from this workshop:

  • Hazards associated with work in confined spaces
  • Types of confined spaces in construction
  • Procedures that must be followed
  • Requirements for a written, confined space entry program
  • Requirements for the confined space permit
  • Role and responsibilities of the contractor employer, controlling employer, and host employer
  • Recommendations for implementing an effective confined space entry program

The majority of “accidents” in confined spaces result in employee fatalities and these new regulations could help prevent dozens of confined space deaths each year involving construction workers.
