OSHA issued a final rule to increase protection for construction workers

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration on May 1, 2015 issued a final rule to increase protections for construction workers in confined spaces.

Midwest Environmental Services, Inc. has taken the necessary actions to ensure that all requirements, in the general and construction industry have been met. The rule will provide construction workers with protections similar to those in manufacturing and general industry, which has been established for the past two decades, with some differences tailored specifically to the construction industry.

Midwest Environmental Services, Inc. has successfully provided confined space services for over three decades and looks forward in supporting these new protections to keep our customers and employees safe.

Please feel free to contact Midwest Environmental Services Inc. Consulting Service Division at 502-491-0991 for any questions you have regarding confined space training or services requiring confined space entry.
