Regulatory Analysis:
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) walking-working surfaces and fall protection standards (also known as slips, trips, and falls) for general industry workplaces regulate most areas where employees may work or travel in the workplace. Walking-working surfaces include ladders, wall and floor openings, ramps, stairways, and scaffolds. Much of the standard is geared to design, construction, and installation specifications for the prevention of worker injury from falls. Other aspects cover procedures and guidelines for safe use of equipment, such as scaffolds, rope descent systems, and portable ladders.
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.
Final Rules:
The U.S. Department of Labor (Department) is publishing this final rule to adjust for inflation the civil monetary penalties assessed or enforced by the Department, pursuant to the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990 as amended by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015.
