Webinar: Confined Space Misconceptions
When: May 12, 2020 1:00 EST
Among the most complicated standards OSHA has issued in its 48-year history is the confined space standard. Although the standard has been around since 1993, few employers are in compliance. Among the most common findings are a failure on the part of most employers to identify all permit required spaces; improper use of alternate entry procedures and reclassification; inadequate written programs; inadequate rescue procedures/service; to name a few. The main reason for this problem is a lack of understanding of what is a complicated standard. This webinar presentation will address these and other issues in a clear and plain-English style using examples and anecdotes.
