OSHA fall protection update 2017

OSHA has its first update in decades on the general industry standards on walking-working surfaces. It can be found here: Federal Register :: Walking-Working Surfaces and Personal Protective Equipment (Fall Protection Systems)

The updated standard’s go into effect in large part starting January 2017. It’s a lot of information but important to review to make sure you are compliant. Enjoy :slight_smile:


Eric thanks for sharing the ‘rare’ OSHA update.


not just an update to suggested standards and practices

now law on May 17

what are you employee based businesses implementing?

I would be interested as well to hear how others on here with employees are implementing this into their training, handbooks, etc.
