This workshop will provide participants with tools they can use to evaluate and refine their written permit-required confined space program. It will provide an overview of the OSHA confined space standards (1910.146 and 1926 Subpart AA) and NFPA 350: Guide for Safe Confined Space Entry and Work. The speaker will discuss how NFPA 350 fills in the gaps in the OSHA confined space standards with best practices for protecting workers who enter into and perform work in and adjacent to confined spaces. The workshop will use a combination of lecture and case study exercises to emphasize important learning concepts.
