The Production has developed this Confined Space Program for the protection of our employees in the workplace. These measures have been developed to ensure safe entry / exit and work practices in confined spaces at production facilities and locations.
The program has been developed to comply with the OSHA General Industry Standard for permit-required confined spaces (29 CFR 1910.146) and the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) General Industry Standard for entry into confined spaces (Title 8 CCR 51565158).
It is the responsibility of the Safety Program Director, production management, and supervisors to ensure that all applicable regulatory requirements and the details of this program are followed.
It is the policy of the Production that no individual or individuals shall be permitted to enter any confined space until a complete assessment of that space is made and, if necessary, specific authorization by entry permit or other written operating procedure is obtained.
