Rethinking the Confined Space Permit Process

When discussing confined space entry with a worker on a project he told me that if he talked to three different safety professionals, he would get three different answers about entry requirements. Unfortunately, he was probably correct as there are a lot of common areas of confusion around the OSHA permit required confined space standard, starting with the term “permit-required”.

In this webinar I will share some of the lessons I’ve learned from researching common problems with confined space entry and working with clients to address these problems and improve their entry programs. There are some effective approaches that can make your confined space program both simpler and safer.
