HVAC construction group the Mechanical Contractors Association of Chicago will present a seminar on OSHA’s new confined spaces safety standard Oct. 22.

The course, taught by consultant Gary Glader, will be held at the MCA’s Construction Education Institute. Under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s new requirements, HVAC market contractors and others must create written confined space entry procedures that include emergency rescue plans.

“Given his expertise and his extensive experience in dealing with OSHA and trade associations, Gary (Glader) was the logical choice to teach this course,” said MCA Chicago Executive Vice President Stephen Lamb. “At MCA, safety and education are two of our highest priorities, and it is our goal to provide our members with the most up-to-date and extensive safety education possible. Everyone wants to see their employees and colleagues get home safe, and that starts with education and awareness on the jobsite.”
