Confined Spaces

Confined Space Advisory Committee

The Confined Space Advisory Committee is comprised of stakeholders from various entities throughout Oregon. Members of the group include representatives from labor, construction, and general industry employers.

The purpose of the meetings is to strengthen the partnership between Oregon OSHA and the regulated community. The mission is to develop confined space rules that apply evenly for construction and general industry. The committee's goal is to provide input into the writing of the new confined space rules so they are easily understood and ensure greater effectiveness for employee safety.

Minutes were not kept during the following meetings. Instead the group went through the draft rule section and changes and annotations were made during the course of these meetings.
