Confined Spaces

With regard to confined spaces in construction, OSHA Standard 1926.21 (b)(6)(i) states: "All employees required to enter into confined or enclosed spaces shall be instructed as to the nature of the hazards involved, the necessary precautions to be taken, and in the use of protective and emergency equipment required". 

While OSHA standards do not required the construction industry to have a written program for confined spaces, we strongly recommend you develop one if needed, and use the OSHA General lndustry 29 CFR 1910.146 - Permit Required Confined Spaces standard as a guide for best practices.  Links to information relating to the general industry standard are listed below:
