About This Course:
Construction sites have unique characteristics. That's why OSHA's rule to protect employees who enter confined spaces while engaged in general industry work is being extended to cover workers entering confined spaces while performing construction work.

Right now, OSHA's new confined spaces in construction regulations are in the final rule stage. The agency expects to issue the final rule very soon, so it's important for safety managers in construction to understand what the new regulations will require and to begin preparations now.

The rule will affect any construction company whose worksite has confined spaces-including residential and industrial builders, highway and street construction companies, water and sewer construction companies, and utility and communications construction companies.

Join us for an in-depth webinar. The presenter, a seasoned EHS professional who has helped many comply with the existing confined space regulations and has been closely tracking the construction confined space regulations, will provide a clear understanding of what will be in the new rule, associated timelines and compliance dates, and strategies for assuring full compliance.
