OSHA has released the final rule for Confined Space Entry in Construction, 29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA.
Many workplaces contain spaces that are considered “confined” because their configurations hinder the activities of employees who must enter, work in, and exit them. A confined space has limited or restricted means for entry or exit, and it is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. Confined spaces include, but are not limited to underground vaults, tanks, storage bins, manholes, pits, silos, process vessels, and pipelines.
OSHA uses the term “permit-required confined space” (permit space) to describe a confined space that has one or more of the following characteristics: contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere; contains a material that has the potential to engulf an entrant; has walls that converge inward or floors that slope downward and taper into a smaller area which could trap or asphyxiate an entrant; or contains any other recognized safety or health hazard, such as unguarded machinery, exposed live wires, or heat stress.
According to data collected by the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL), Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) program, fatal injuries in confined spaces fluctuated from a low of 81 in 1998 to a high of 100 in 2000 during the five-year period, averaging 92 fatalities per year.

National Safety Compliance has developed this training video and materials to assist employers in training their workers about Confined Space Entry safety.
For decades OSHA has only provided the 29 CFR 1910.146 Confined Space Entry Standard for General Industry as the standard for the construction industry. OSHA has released updated regulations specific to the construction industry, 29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA.
Differences between the 1910.146 General Industry Standard and the Final Rule 1926 Subpart AA (May 4, 2015) include:
General Industry Standard
Proposed Construction Standard
Organization of the Standard
The standard begins with requirements for entering Permit-Required Confined Spaces (PRCSs).
The proposed standard takes a step-by-step approach, explaining how to assess hazards, determine the classification for the space, and how to safely enter it.
The standard requires a host employer to coordinate entry operations with a contractor when the host employer and the contractor both have employees working in or near a permit space.
The proposed standard requires the controlling contractor to coordinate entry operations among contractors who have employees in a confined space regardless of whether or not the controlling contractor has employees in the confined space.
Confined Space with Hazards Isolated
Does not address working in confined spaces in which the hazard has been isolated.
Allows employers to establish an Isolated-Hazard Confined Space by isolating or eliminating all physical and atmospheric hazards in a confined space.
Controlled-Atmosphere Permit-Required Confined Space
Monitoring required as necessary…………….
Continuous monitoring required unless the mployer demonstrates that periodic monitoring is sufficient.
Permit-Required Confined Spaces (PRCS)
No explicit requirement for entry supervisor to monitor PRCS conditions during entry.
Explicit requirements for entry supervisor to monitor PRCS conditions during entry.
Requires a written PRCS plan………………
No written plan required when employer maintains a copy of the standard at the workplace.
No specific early-warning requirements for up-stream hazards
Early-warning requirement for up-stream hazards in sewer-type spaces.
