The OSHA Confined Spaces Advisor provides guidance to help employers protect workers from the hazards of entry into permit-required confined spaces.
The atmosphere within a confined space is subject to evaluation testing to determine the chemical hazards that are or may become present in the space's atmosphere, and to identify the steps required to ensure that atmospheric conditions are safe for a worker to enter the space.
The OSHA Training Center is offering a series of courses focusing on the hazards associated with confined spaces in the workplace to help employers and workers recognize and prevent confined space hazards but also to provide an overview of OSHA's Permit-Required Confined Space Standard for general industry employers.
