Confined spaces present a unique hazard in the workplace. Environmental conditions can change unexpectedly, and the consequences can be dire and immediate. Residential construction sites routinely have small crews and inadequate resources to rescue an affected worker. In this session, learn how to identify and protect workers from the hazards presented by working in confined spaces.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the definition of a confined space and how it applies to residential construction.
  2. Examine the OSHA requirements of Confined Spaces in Construction Standard (1926 Subpart AA).
  3. Recognize confined spaces in residential construction.
  4. Discuss how to prevent injuries and implement a proactive confined space program.
