OSHA's standard for confined spaces, Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations Part 1910.146 "Permit-Required Confined Spaces," effective April 15, 1993, contains the requirements for practices and procedures to protect employees in general industry from the hazards of entry into permit-required confined spaces (i.e., permit spaces).
