OSHA outlines the requirements for monitoring confined spaces in standard 1910.146 Permit Required Confined Spaces. OSHA states, "before an employee enters the space, the internal atmosphere shall be tested, with a calibrated direct-reading instrument". OSHA goes on to say, "atmospheric testing is required for two distinct purposes: evaluation of the hazards of the permit space and verification that acceptable entry conditions for entry into that space exist." All of the 4-gas monitors we sell meet these requirements.
