DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AB47 Publication ID: Spring 1997 
Title: Confined Spaces for Construction (Part 1926) (Construction: Preventing Suffocation/Explosions in Confined Spaces) 
Abstract: In January 1993, OSHA issued a general industry rule on preventing suffocation/explosions in confined spaces (58 FR 4462). This standard does not apply to the construction industry because of differences in the nature of the worksite. In discussions with the United Steel Workers of America on a settlement agreement for the general industry standard, OSHA agreed to issue a proposed rule to extend the protection to construction workers, appropriate to their work environment. 1,000,000 construction workers are exposed to this hazard annually.
