Construction standards. Safety in the construction industry (Fig. 956). The excavation standard includes access control, the establishment of checkin and checkout procedures, safety training, air monitoring with specific limits listed, ventilation, communication, and control of hazards. It also describes required supports and bracing. 21 of the construction safety standard defines confined spaces in construction in the same way as does the PRCS standard, and offers as examples storage tanks, process vessels, bins, boilers, ventilation or exhaust ducts, sewers, underground utility vaults, tunnels, pipelines, and open-top spaces more than 4 feet in depth such as pits, tubs, vaults, and vessels.

Even workers who can swim have drowned in water as the water rose too high and filled the breathing space, or no one rescued them before they tired and sank. Liquids that are toxic or give off toxic vapors cause entrants to become disoriented and lose consciousness; unable to self-rescue, they eventually fall into the liquid and die. Engulfment in a liquid causes death either by filling the lungs as the dying person gasps for air, or simply covering the nose and mouth so the victim suffocates. Sewer system entry is a special situation where surge flow and flooding should be predictable.

OSHA provides the following examples of work defined as maintenance rather than construction: . Relining a furnace or sewer line Brick replacement in a manhole Lining a tank, including patching or removal and replacement Even though the employer is a construction company, these jobs are defined as maintenance and covered by the PRCS standard rather than the construction safety standard. State plans. The OSH Act encourages states to develop and operate, under OSHA guid- ance, state job safety and health plans.
