Safety in Confined Spaces – Implications for Weatherization Webinar
Recorded June 9, 2016.
This session includes presentation and 30 min of discussion. Attendees will learn about OSHA’s Confined Space Rule, 29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA in the context of standard WAP weatherization work. The session outlines definitions and guidelines found in the confined space rule, making the distinction between Permit Spaces and Non-permit Spaces. This session is intended to partially fulfill requirements that demonstrate someone to be a Competent Person for the purposes of the rule.
Attendees learn the categories of confined space hazards that result in permit space requirements and are further briefed on hazards typical to weatherization jobsite confined spaces (crawlspaces and attics). For most Weatherization projects, practical compliance means not working in permit spaces. This session emphasizes controlling or preventing these hazards in order to avoid permit spaces.
