Working in confined spaces is often very dangerous and requires planning in order to keep workers safe. OSHA’s confined space standards for construction and general industry are among the most difficult OSHA standards to comprehend and to achieve compliance. Let the confined space experts at EI assist with your confined space program.
EI can identify your permit-required confined spaces and provide a report which lists each space and includes the hazards and which entry procedures (alternate entry, reclassification or full entry procedures) to follow.
EI’s confined space training includes a clear and easy to understand explanation of OSHA’s confined space standards. Upon request, training also includes rescue training.

Great article Bill! Really enjoyed the read. Very important stuff for everyone that maintains an OSHA 300 Log to know. Even after 22 years of doing this type of recordkeeping, I even learned a couple of new things from this article.
Phase Is are conducted per ASTM E 1527-13 and include several major components: a site reconnaissance, completion of a User Questionnaire, a regulatory database search, interviews with persons knowledgeable of the property, and a review of reasonably ascertainable and readily available historical sources to identify the use of the property back to 1940 or its first developed use, whichever is earlier. As such, the ASTM E 1527-13 Standard Practice provides specific guidance as to what must be addressed. However, there is no ASTM standard for Desktop Reviews (more commonly called Risk Search with Risk Assessments-RSRAs). Therefore, RSRAs differ from consultant to consultant and also do not provide protection on CERCLA.
