MCAA recently added information to its safety bulletin and model program on confined spaces in construction to emphasize that even when employers are in compliance with OSHA’s confined spaces in construction standard, they are still required to comply with applicable parts of the agency’s welding and cutting standard. Welding, cutting and heating in confined spaces may generate hazards that are not adequately covered by OSHA’s Confined Spaces in Construction Standard (29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA).
