Established in 1977, the mission of the Confined Spaces Committee is to promote the continuous improvement of health and safety in confined spaces by creating opportunities, for all who are interested, to learn more about this topic. Through training, publications, open exchanges, and social interaction, we share information, ideas and resources on confined space hazards, related industrial hygiene issues, safe work practices and injury prevention.
In pursuing these objectives the committee:
Assigns specific members to track and report on identified issues
Responds to AIHA Board requests to address specific issues
Sponsors or develops short courses and seminars, and develops training for use of equipment and procedures, inspection, and writing entry permits.
