Des Plaines, ILL -- Reducing confined space injuries and providing more secure rescue operations, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) recently announced the American National Standard Z117.1-2003 Safety Requirements for Confined Spaces. The newly revised standard establishes the minimum safety requirements for confined space operations, which includes personal protection equipment, safeguarding, confined space permits and emergency response plans.

The standard also includes an appendix providing sample permits, surveys and evaluations.
