Confined Space OSHA 1910.146: It’s Time to Change the Statistics
When working in confined spaces, there is an increased risk of exposure for serious physical injury or possible death from hazards such as entrapment, engulfment and hazardous atmospheric conditions.
OSHA 1910.146 provides minimum standards for employers to follow when planning confined space entry but, are they enough to protect your workers in a real hazardous environment? When permit required confined spaces after years and years still remain the leading cause of multiple fatalities in the workplace, why haven’t we eliminated or mitigated these risks? Without a continuous focus from employers on realistically preparing, supervising, and protecting workers, these statistics won’t change.
In this free webinar, we will discuss best practices vs just meeting the minimum standards and which areas are insufficient and need change such as air monitoring, non-entry and entry rescue, and training and equipment considerations for a rescue team.
