Confined Spaces (Construction)
National Summary

This topic covers employers with employees working in confined spaces on construction worksites with one or more confined spaces. OSHA's confined space in construction rule covers construction, alteration, and/or repair work, including painting and decorating activities beyond maintenance in general industry workplaces. Confined spaces include buildings, residences, highways, bridges, tunnels, utility lines, and other types of projects. Also potentially affected are general contractors, as well as specialty-trade construction contractors and employers engaged in some types of residential construction work.

The rule includes requirements for training, identification and assessment of confined spaces, hazard analysis, entering, working, exiting, and rescue for confined spaces containing a variety of different hazards.
