Description

Unlike most general-industry worksites, construction worksites are continually evolving, with the number and characteristics of confined spaces changing as work progresses. A new standard emphasizes training, continual worksite evaluation and communication requirements to further protect workers’ safety and health. Attend this free Minnesota OSHA Compliance seminar to learn the scope of the new standard and what it requires for practices and procedures to protect employees engaged in construction activities involving a confined space. Join the discussion to have questions about your specific situation answered and learn solutions from others in the industry from their on-site practices. The Construction Safety Seminar series is a great opportunity to get answers directly from Minnesota OSHA Compliance, citation-free. The seminars are designed to help those who work in the construction industry to re-energize their company’s safety and health practices. Attendees have the opportunity to ask questions and offer input during the discussion, as well as learn about the compliance issues Minnesota OSHA is currently focusing on.
