OSHA estimates that nearly a quarter million workplaces have permit-required confined spaces and over two million workers, in a wide range of occupations, are called on to enter confined spaces each year. These entry activities result in 50 to 100 fatalities and over 10,000 recordable injuries annually.

Are there confined spaces at your workplace?

Our presenter, Barbara Jo Ruble, STC President, will provide a detailed look at the OSHA confined space program requirements, review common problems identified through our audit practice, and share insights on how to ensure that your Confined Space Management Program effectively protects your employees and contractors against the dangers of confined space entry.

Space is limited. Registration details are available on STC’s website.
