OSHA Confined Space Standard for Construction
Optimum Safety Management has put together a number of resources for construction employers seeking guidance regarding the OSHA Confined Spaces Standard for Construction, 29 CFR 1926.1200-1213 Subpart AA, with good faith enforcement beginning August 3 and full OSHA enforcement beginning October 2, 2015.
Full enforcement of OSHA’s Confined Space Standard for Construction is being delayed again for residential construction. In a policy memorandum issued today, OSHA announced that it will delay full enforcement for residential construction until January 8, 2016.
For more information, you can view the full policy memorandum here. Please note that full enforcement of the Confined Space Standard for non-residential construction employers is in effect.
A confined space is any location that has limited means of entry and exit, is large enough for a worker to enter, but is not intended for regular or continuous occupancy. Confined spaces include, but are not limited to, tanks, vessels, silos, storage bins, hoppers, vaults, pits, manholes, tunnels, equipment housings, ductwork, pipelines, etc.
