NFPA Confined Space Committee

I have spent the past two days in Philadelphia , PA working with the newly established NFPA Confined Space Safe Work-practices Committee.   What a rewarding two days!  Twenty-one people from around the country collaborating on best practices and procedures towards the goal of ending confined space related deaths in the workplace.

The deliverable of this team will be a recommended best practice document for safely entering confined spaces for both work and rescue in the fire services as well as general industry.  We have a long way to go, but I am certain that with the knowledge, expertise and level of experience represented on this team, that we can deliver the most comprehensive guide to confined space entry that has ever been produced.   Craig Schroll,  who took the lead in originally forming this committee but passed away before the team could hold its first meeting, would be very proud of the work that is being done.

Stay tuned for more on the work of the NFPA Confined Space Committee in future posts!

    It’s awesome to go to see this site and reading the views of all colleagues about this post, while I am also keen of getting know-how.

    I would like to obtain a copy of the best practice confined space entry procedure whenever it becomes available.

    Hi Josh,

    Thanks for the comment. The NFPA will be sending the best practice guide out for public comment very soon. I will post when it goes out and a link on how to view it.
