Webinar Summary

The craft brewing industry is expanding at an unprecedented rate with more craft brewers joining this business segment every day. Along with this growth, there has also been an increase in serious injuries related to the brewing industry. This has not gone unnoticed by OSHA – even to the extent that OSHA has created “Emphasis Programs” in some states (such as Colorado) to give “extra attention” to craft brewers. Come join Mark Jaeggi, a certified safety professional with over 36 years of experience as he discusses the regulatory requirements of Confined Space Entry. Mark will explain how this regulation applies to the Brewing Industry, how to develop a written program and training to comply with the OSHA requirements, and additionally, provide free resources that craft brewers can access for template programs that can be easily modified to fit their specific brewery needs. Use this hour to hear Mark explain the regulation, and for you to ask specific questions, concerning your brewery operations.
