What It’s About:
Effective in October 2015, OSHA's new Confined Space regulation is confusing at best and overwhelming at worst. From new construction to remodeling and home performance improvement, this regulation has the potential to impact a huge portion of the industry. Attics, basements, crawl spaces and man-holes must be evaluated for hazards and then made safe prior to entry. Some remodelers and home performance professionals are further challenged by the need for permits, written programs, specialized training and more. If you are not sure how, or even if, this new rule affects you, join us for this info-packed session that explains the regulation and shares best practices for being compliant.
What You'll Learn:
Define and identify confined space hazards and controls.
Determine if you are subject to the Confined Space regulation.
Understand methods for compliance and develop the beginning of your confined space permit (when required).
