On November 17, OSHA published its long-awaited final rule on walking/working surfaces and personal fall protection in general industry. Any job task where slips, trips, or falls could result in serious injury or fatality will be subject to the rule, so the impact is expected to be significant for a wide variety of industries. According to OSHA, the rule incorporates advances in technology, industry best practices, and national consensus standards to provide effective and cost-efficient worker protection. For more details on the new rule, including compliance dates, check out our news article and sign up for our upcoming webinar on December 5 featuring safety law expert Adele Abrams.
