The Rule takes effect August 3, 2015

(Tuesday, May 5, 2015 PaintSquare News)

Coordination of contractors, continuous monitoring and more rigorous inspection are among the requirements of the first new federal rule for confined-space work in construction.

'This Rule Will Save Lives'

Chief among the new provisions is a requirement that multiple employers share safety information and continuously monitor hazards.

That provision is designed to prevent, for example, one subcontractor from running a generator near the entrance of a confined space where another trade is working, inadvertently causing a building of carbon monoxide in the space.

The new rule has five key differences from the general-industry rule and clarifies several existing requirements.

In general, the rule requires employers to determine what kinds of spaces their workers are in, what hazards could be there, how those hazards should be made safe, what training workers should receive, and how to rescue those workers if anything goes wrong.


OSHA issued a confined-space standard in 1993, but exempted construction. A shipyard directive was released in 2011. The construction rule has been 35 years in the making.
