      - federal osha

      What is the Final Rule update to the Federal OSHA General Industry Walking and Working Surfaces and Fall Protection Standards?

      Falls from heights and on the same level (a working surface) are among the leading causes of serious work-related injuries and deaths. OSHA has issued a final rule on Walking-Working Surfaces and Personal Fall Protection Systems to better protect workers in general industry from these hazards by updating and clarifying standards and adding training and inspection requirements.

      The rule affects a wide range of workers, from painters to warehouse workers. It does not change construction or agricultural standards.

      The rule incorporates advances in technology, industry best practices, and national consensus standards to provide effective and cost-efficient worker protection. Specifically, it updates general industry standards addressing slip, trip, and fall hazards (subpart D), and adds requirements for personal fall protection systems (subpart I).

      OSHA estimates that these changes will prevent 29 fatalities and 5,842 lost-workday injuries every year.

      If you own a building with fall hazards (exposures to falls over 4' in height) then this is for you.
