Walking-Working Surfaces Compliance: Practical Tips For Minimizing Slip And Fall Hazards In Light Of New OSHA Subpart D Provisions
|Date / Time:
Slips, trips, and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents. According to OSHA, these accidents account for 15% of all accidental deaths, second only to motor vehicle accidents as a cause of fatalities.
OSHA’s new Walking-Working Surfaces Rule, effective January 17, 2017, addresses these accidents. The new rule (29 CFR Part 1910, subpart D) affects all general industry walking-working surfaces, as well as revised and new provisions for fixed ladders and rope descent systems. The rule also addresses training on fall hazards and fall protection systems.
The final rule also adds new requirements on the design, performance, and use of personal fall protection systems to the general industry Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) standards (29 CFR part 1910, subpart I). These and other measures the final rule incorporates reflect advances in technology and industry best practices that have been developed since OSHA adopted subpart D in 1971 and will provide challenges for safety managers nationwide.
Join us for updates on how to review and upgrade your slip, trip, and fall prevention program. Attorney Barry Spurlock will share strategies to identify and asses hazards and steps to develop effective programs for mitigating associated exposures and injuries.
