A Better Understanding of OSHA Confined Space Entry Requirements Can Reduce Workplace Fatalities and Injuries
ARLINGTON, TX, USA, September 7, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — OSHA Training Services Inc. announces the creation of an all-new Confined Space Entry Blog. As the name suggests, this blog helps readers better understand the requirements of OSHA Confined Space Entry Standards for construction and industry in general.
Company officials say the blog was started because there are too many workers experiencing death and serious injury while working in confined spaces. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) 2020 National Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries reveals that more than 1,000 workers involved in confined space entry work died in the United States between 2011 and 2018.
This new blog is written by Curtis Chambers, a confined space expert with 35 years of experience as an Occupational Safety and Health Manager and Consultant, Safety Manager in the State of Texas OSHA Consulting Program ( OSHCON) and prolific trainer on many OSHA training topics, including confined space entry requiring a permit. Mr. Chambers is also a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) and holds a Master of Science in Occupational Health and Safety from Southeastern Oklahoma State University. He has also testified more than 100 times as an OSHA Recognized Expert in litigation related to, among other matters, confined space permit accidents, injuries and fatalities.
Chambers adds, “I’m not naive enough to think I’ve seen it all or know it all. This is why our blog is set up to receive comments from readers, including some who will no doubt share a wealth of knowledge and experience in confined space entry work that others can benefit from.
The blog is now available for viewing on the specialized OSHA Training Service website dedicated to confined space entry training.
