In 2015, OSHA issued a new standard for construction work in confined spaces. While general industry standards specify protocols for operating in these spaces, OSHA determined that a specialized set of standards was required for construction work because of its unique conditions, including rapidly shifting workspaces and inherently high employee turnover.

With this course from The National Association of Safety Professionals (NASP), you can learn about standards and safety precautions for confined space entry in construction along with general industry standards designed to protect your staff.
