Confined Space in Construction Glossary

confined-space-glossary

Did you read our post about OSHA’s upcoming Confined Spaces in Construction regulation? If, not you may want to check it out. If you did read it, advance straight to “go” and collect $200!

Since OSHA’s creating a new standard, we dug around a little and found the terms that they will define in the standard. The terms were listed in OSHA’s Confined Spaces in Construction (Proposed Rule) document, which is a very handy summary of the proposed new regulation–if also a long (95 pages) and dry read.

You can use the glossary right here on our blog or you can click the download button to download a SCORM version of the glossary and then import it into your learning management system.

electrical-word-game

Every year, fall protection is on OSHA’s list of the Top Ten Most Cited Violations.

And falls are also always a significant contributor to workplace injuries and fatalities as well.

Playing a fall prevention and protection word game won’t solve all those problems. We need better training, more onsite observations, more detail to incident report, and more.

But that said, this word game can help remind you of some important issues related to fall prevention and protection. And it’s fun, too, so you might want to use this in your next safety meeting.

msha-glossary

Note: the downloadable glossary is at the bottom. 🙂

Convergence Training provides a number of training solutions to help mine production-operators and owners comply with the Part 46 mine training requirements.

First, we’ve got the Convergence MSHA learning management system (LMS).

If this sounds like a one-stop MSHA-compliance solution to you, that’s because it is.

Next, we’ve got a full library of 3D animated MSHA Part 46 surface miner training materials, including 27 separate titles (all carefully matched to the training subjects MSHA requires as part of Part 46).

And of course, your friendly Convergence Training blogger (that’s me, folks!) has MSHA Part 46 squarely in his sights, and this is just the first of several anticipated posts on MSHA. So keep coming back for more helpful MSHA resources.

And what’s more, if you lower your eyes just a touch you’ll see that we’ve created a free, interactive, downloadable MSHA Part 46 glossary. The glossary contains all of the terms listed and defined in Title 30, CFR 46.2, “Definitions.” You can check it out now, bookmark it and come back later, or download a free copy to your own computer (just click the red “Download” button). Once you have a copy, you can save it to your desktop or network, put it on your Safety Home Page, email it to friends and coworkers, or even put it in your learning management system (LMS) and assign it.

A few important notes: The terms and definitions were taken directly from the text of the standard as printed on MSHA’s website in January, 2013. Convergence Training makes no claims regarding the accuracy of those definitions, nor to keep this glossary up to date to match any changes that MSHA makes after the date of this posting.
