Confined Spaces – Residential Construction

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:
