Construction Confined Space Entry.

Greetings Group.  While I was out of the country for a spell, I found out that OSHA released their new version for confinded space for comments.  I was looking on the web site and could not find it quickly.  Does anyone have a copy of their proposed standard that they could share?

Basically, noone knows the actual legal standard width minimum for a legal step bench.
Comment by Jason Church on November 3, 2010 at 8:42am
Can anyone give me proper clarification on the matter of MOL approved step bench's for drywallers? As I understand it, there are two different regulations which the MOL inspectors refer to when they see those benches on site... if the drywall bench is considered to be a work platform, it needs to be a minimum of 18" inches wide -

73(4) A runway, ramp or platform shall be at least 460 millimetres wide and shall be securely fastened in place. O. Reg. 213/91, s. 73 (4).

and if the drywall bench is considered to be a step ladder, the worker cannot stand on the top of it -

83. (1) When a step-ladder is being used as a self-supporting unit, its legs shall be fully-spread and its spreader shall be locked. O. Reg. 213/91, s. 83 (1).
(2) No worker shall stand on the top of or the pail shelf of a step-ladder. O. Reg. 213/91, s. 83 (2).
I have been trying to get a confirmation on this regulation. I have heard about this from other customers but when we call the MOL, they tell us that it doesn’t exist. There was the same issue in the paint industry were some inspectors are using their “own” regulation as the standard.

Anyone help with this GREY area??

After a review of the available research published over a 5 year period, the American Heart Association released its 2010 CPR Guidelines. As expected, the focus for CPR is on good quality chest compressions. Here are the differences between the 2005 and the 2010 CPR Guidelines:

A-B-C is for babies; now it's C-A-B!
It used to be follow your ABC's: airway, breathing and chest compressions. Now, Compressions come first, only then do you focus on Airway and Breathing. The only exception to the rule will be newborn babies, but everyone else -- whether it's infant CPR, child CPR or adult CPR -- will get chest compressions before you worry about the airway.
