All Confined Spaces are NOT Created Equal

The term “confined space entry” is often used interchangeably with “bin entry” in the grain handling industry. Grain bins certainly can be considered confined spaces, but there are distinct differences between the two, according to OSHA’s Grain Handling Standard. This webinar will dispel common misconceptions about confined space entry by comparing OSHA’s definition side by side with grain bin entry standards.
