Anyone out there as passionate about confined space safety as I am? If you are at all involved with confined space entry then come hear about the new NFPA 350 Guide to Confined Space Entry and Work at the NFPA conference next week in Chicago! The Technical Committee has completed the second draft revisions and, absent any NITMAMs, the new guide will be released this coming November! This document explains “how to” comply with provisions in the existing confined space regulations and standards by providing more detailed guidance on subjects such as hazard identification, air monitoring, ventilation and rescue. It also addresses some of the gaps in the existing standards and provides best practices for confined space entry.
A presentation on NFPA 350 is scheduled for Wednesday June 24th 9:30-10:30 in Room S404bc. For those who are not attending the conference, you can stay on top of what is happening with NFPA 350 by signing up for email alerts at www.nfpa.org/350. Hope to see you at the conference!
