What obligations does the host employer have when they hire a contractor to work within one of their Permit-Required Confined Spaces (PRCS)? The answer seems to be all over the map, depending on the industry where the space is located, the size of the company, the company’s written program, etc. This article is intended to help make sense of what should be happening when a contractor is hired to enter a PRCS on a host employer’s site. I am using 1910.146 and 1926.1201-.1213, as well as 1910.147, as my basis for my discussion.
