NFPA 350 Confined Space Document Open for Comments

NFPA 350 Confined Space Document Open for Comments

The document is designed as a "best practices" guide for working in and around confined spaces.

The NFPA Guide for Safe Confined Space Entry and Work (Draft) was approved for public comment by the NFPA Standards Council this month, and Roco Rescue urged stakeholders who are involved in work done in and around confined spaces to offer feedback. Comments are being accepted until Jan. 3, 2014.

The document is designed as a "best practices" guide for working in and around confined spaces. "As with any document that attempts to be all inclusive, it may work well for some while negatively affecting others," Roco Rescue's online message about the draft states. "Therefore, it is very important that 'WE' the public, the people who will be using this type of document in real world applications, offer our feedback. Now is the time to offer comments and suggestions. Comments as to what may or may not be feasible for your organization or what may have been overlooked in this document are a vital part of this NFPA process.... As you read it, please keep in mind that it is currently listed as a 'Best Practices Guide.' However, this does not mean that at some point in the future it won’t possibly become an NFPA Standard."
