OSHA estimates that 200 to 300 deaths, and thousands of injuries, occur every year when employees are working in confined spaces. That's why the Agency published the Permit-Required Confined Spaces Standards for General Industry and Construction. They establish requirements and procedures that reduce the risks associated with these hazards as much as possible. Whether they will be doing general industry or construction work, employees need to know as much as possible about working safely in and around confined spaces. They also need to be familiar with the OSHA regulations that help to keep them safe.
To help address OSHA's concerns, and provide the first level of training needed by employees under the confined space regulations, this program is designed to present fundamental information on confined space entry.
