DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AB47 Publication ID: Spring 2002 
Title: Confined Spaces in Construction (Part 1926): Preventing Suffocation/Explosions in Confined Spaces 
Abstract: In January 1993, OSHA issued a general industry rule to protect employees who enter confined spaces (29 CFR 1910.146). This standard does not apply to the construction industry because of differences in the nature of the worksite in the construction industry. 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 confined-space protection to construction workers appropriate to their work environment. OSHA intends to issue a proposed rule addressing this construction industry hazard next year.
