National Summary

This analysis covers the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) general industry standard for personal fall protection systems. Falls from heights and on the same level are among the leading causes of serious work-related injuries and deaths. The personal fall protection systems rule affects a wide variety of general industry firms, including building management services, utilities, warehousing, retail, window cleaning, chimney sweeping, and outdoor advertising. OSHA estimates the personal fall protection systems and the walking-working surfaces rules could prevent 29 fatalities and 5,842 lost-workday injuries every year.
