Navigating the Legal Requirements Under OSHA’s Revised Walking-Working Surface Standard

December 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

On November 7, 2016 OSHA issued its final rule revising its walking-working surfaces regulations while greatly expanding its fall protection requirement for General Industry.  The final rule, 20 years in the making, took effect on January 17, 2017, and it is anticipated to impact approximately 7 million general industry workplaces and more than 100 million employees in America.  This program will provide an overview of the Standard and the timeline for implementation.

This presentation will examine:

  • Updated requirements intended to reduce slips, trips and falls
  • Revised rules for ladders stairways scaffold and dockboard safety
  • New options for fall protection
  • Employee training, including the proper use of personal protective equipment

Since fall protection is always one of OSHA’s most-frequently cited safety violations and slips, trip and falls are one of the leading causes of workplace injuries and fatalities, this final rule will significantly impact most employers.
