Confined Spaces – Residential Construction

Hey Everyone

Those of you who are in residential construction noted that when they updated the confined space entry standard a while back, it included residential construction.  This industry had been somewhat overlooked by OSHA in the past.  They have updated some of their materials to be more clear as to what is expected.

CalOSHA – Scaffold Guides and Confined Spaces

I had a request for CalOSHA Stuff, so I looked around and sure enough – there is a good amount.  For Non-California viewers and international types (you know who you are) – The USA has the federal OSHA, but the states can opt out of the federal OSHA plan as long as their regulations are as strong, or stronger, than the federal OSHA.  Hence, this stuff is at least as good as what OSHA requires.

Below are materials on scaffolds:
