Working in confined spaces is often very dangerous and requires planning in order to keep workers safe. OSHA’s confined space standards for construction and general industry are among the most difficult OSHA standards to comprehend and to achieve compliance. Let the confined space experts at EI assist with your confined space program.
EI can identify your permit-required confined spaces and provide a report which lists each space and includes the hazards and which entry procedures (alternate entry, reclassification or full entry procedures) to follow.
EI’s confined space training includes a clear and easy to understand explanation of OSHA’s confined space standards. Upon request, training also includes rescue training.

Great article Bill! Really enjoyed the read. Very important stuff for everyone that maintains an OSHA 300 Log to know. Even after 22 years of doing this type of recordkeeping, I even learned a couple of new things from this article.
OSHA makes it clear at 1910.146(d)(5)(iii) that when testing the atmosphere in a permit-required confined space, testers should check oxygen first, followed by flammables, and finally, toxic gases and vapors. This does not appear to make sense since atmospheric monitors read all gases simultaneously.
