OSHA’s May 2015 Confined Spaces in Construction regulation (CFR 29 1926 Subpart AA) not only includes specific requirements for construction activities in confined spaces, it also clarifies many of the rules included in its Permit-Required Confined Spaces Standard for General Industry (29 CFR Part 1910.146) as well.
The Construction Standard can also apply to many employers that don’t normally consider themselves to be “construction-type” businesses.
MARCOM’s “Confined Space Entry” training products provide employees with the information they need to stay safe in Permit Spaces and helps employers stay in compliance with OSHA requirements… whether they doing “general industry” or “construction” type work.
All of the products… the new “Micro-Learning” and full-length online courses as well as the DVDs and interactive CD courses… discuss topics that are integral to employees’ understanding of these issues.
Topics covered in these products include:
- Reducing risk with a Permit Space Program.
- The Entry Permit.
- Testing for hazardous atmospheres.
- Making a space as safe as possible.
- A step-by-step approach to safe entry.
- Attendants and evacuation.
- “Special” situations.
- …and more.
All “Confined Space Entry” products are available in English and Spanish.
