Slips, Trips, And Falls: OSHA's New Rules
|Date / Time:
Statistically speaking, slips, trips and falls are the second leading cause of death among general industry workers and account for about 20 percent of nonfatal workplace injuries.
Now, OSHA has released a new final rule that takes effect January 17, 2017, and dramatically alters employers responsibilities for compliance with prevention of these significant injuries, inspection of working and walking surfaces, employee training, and even development of fall prevention plans for some types of work.
This webinar will help employers understand what is required under the new rules, how fall protection equipment requirements have changed, which general industry activities are now more aligned with construction requirements, and what new equipment will be needed to conform to the updated requirements (and when).
The course will also address proactive measures you can implement now to reduce expensive fall injuries in your workplace.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
