ALPHARETTA, GA, May 22, 2008 -- MACTEC Engineering and Consulting, Inc. has introduced Confined Space Management System (CSMS)© an innovative web-based application that allows shop supervisors, safety, fire department and bioenvironmental personnel to track activities and people within confined spaces. Ann E. Massey, president and chief executive officer of MACTEC, Inc., the holding company (www.mactec.com), made the announcement.
