Confined-Space Safety: 3 August Enforcement Date Delayed Two Months

from Safety + Health

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will delay penalizing construction employers who fail to comply with the new Confined Spaces in Construction Standard, providing they make a "good-faith effort" to meet the standard's mandates. The grace period will last for two months, until October 2. According to OSHA, employers will demonstrate a good-faith effort by taking alternative measures to protect employees who work in confined spaces, ordering the new equipment required, and scheduling employee training. OSHA estimates that compliance with the new rule will prevent about 800 serious injuries each year. more
