OSHA Update: Walking-Working Surfaces Environmental Quality Management, Inc.
November 18, 2036 and after All fixed ladders with a height over 24 feet to include retrofitting those already in place must meet compliance. With slips, trips, and falls as their focus, OSHA estimates the new rules along with changes to 1910.140, Personal Fall Protection Systems will prevent 29 fatalities and 5842, lost-workday injuries each year. Specifically, these changes are meant to give industrial employers the same flexibility found in the construction standards to implement other fall protection methods in place of using static guardrails or barriers. OSHA even reorganized and renamed the individual sections within 1910, Subpart D to further align General Industry with the long-standing Construction standards, which were not changed. Note: The agriculture standards were also left unaltered. One of the more beneficial changes was to eliminate the mandate on using guardrails as the primary fall protection method. Under the new provisions, employers may now choose to use an accepted fall protection system. This includes non-conventional fall protection in certain situations and practices like implementing designated work areas on low-slope roofs.
