Course Description: On May 4, 2015, OSHA issued a new standard for construction work in confined spaces, which will be effective starting August 3, 2015. Confined spaces can present physical and atmospheric hazards that can be avoided if they are recognized and addressed prior to entering these spaces to perform work. The new standard, Subpart AA of 29 CFR 1926 will help prevent construction workers from being hurt or killed by eliminating and isolating hazards in confined spaces at construction sites similar to the way workers in other industries are already protected.
This one day course discusses the requirements of OSHA’s permit required confined space standard, Subpart AA of 29 CFR 1926. It is designed for employers or a designated representative (safety managers, project managers, superintendents, foremen) with the responsibility to develop and maintain a permit confined space program.
Areas of instruction include regulatory scope, applications and definitions, general requirements, permit required confined space programs and permitting process, duties of authorized entrants, attendants, entry supervisors and rescue.
This course satisfies the learning objectives of OSHA’s 7300 course tailored to meet the needs of construction operations. Comparisons and contrasts with 29 CFR 1910.146 will be discussed.
For more detailed confined space entry education, with workshops and demonstrations, plan to attend OSHA 2264 Permit Required Confined Space Entry course (4 days).
