Ensure Compliance with the Requirements of the OSHA Confined Space Rule

The OSHA confined space rule was originally written for general industry (OSH 1910) applications. A few years ago, it was extended to include construction (OSHA 1926). OSHA requires that employees be trained and equipped according to a strict set of criteria for authorized entry into a confined space. Confined spaces are ubiquitous throughout industry and all types of infrastructure: in new and old construction, transportation, industrial, manufacturing, chemical, oil, and gas, etc. Because of the inherent risks associated with working in a confined space, most safety trainers need a degree of confirmation and confidence that they are covering all the bases on actual risks and exposures.

Join this session where expert speaker John J. Meola, CSP, ARM will discuss and explain the safety training requirements for permit-required confined space entry in detail sufficient to educate a safety trainer or competent person in the intricacies of providing training under the OSHA confined space standard. Because of the complex nature and distinctly higher level of hazard associated with working in a confined space, this session will provide a clear understanding of your responsibility for employee training under OSHA and best industry practices.

This session will address how to recognize and identify the hazards commonly associated with entering a confined space, and how to maintain documentation for the entry. You will also be able to recognize and identify the qualifications and classifications of personnel involved, using a fire extinguisher, using a respirator in a confined space, and ventilating a confined space. There are a lot of ways for bad things to occur in a confined space. The session will help you plan the operation and train your employees for a smooth, incident free operation.

The session will also address questions such as whether you are addressing the issues that can hurt your people; whether  you are in compliance with OSHA requirements; do you feel confident that your employees will be protected when they go into this confined space and what you could be missing that could hurt your employees. In this session, you will also have the opportunity to ask specific technical and program-related questions, to resolve any doubts or issues.
