Description:

Many employers still haven’t completed required training under OSHA’s final rule on walking-working surfaces and fall protection—even though the deadline for compliance was May 17, 2017.

OSHA’s Walking-Working Surfaces Rule, in effect since January 17, 2017, addresses slips, trips, and fall-related accidents. The 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.

With slips, trips, and falls constituting the majority of general industry accidents, and those accidents accounting for 15% of all accidental deaths, according to OSHA it’s imperative to pay close and comprehensive attention to your training. Not doing so could cost your organization expensive fines, and could lead to lasting injuries and loss of production among your workforce.

Join us for an in-depth webinar on how to complete training and master compliance with OSHA’s updated general industry fall protection requirements under the final rule.

You’ll learn:

  • Which equipment is covered under OSHA’s final walking/working surfaces and fall protection regulations—so you can tell which of your workers must be trained
  • Performance-based training requirements
  • Who qualifies to deliver the training
  • Recommendations for selecting the training method to use
  • How to ensure that workers understand what they’re being taught
  • Acceptable forms of fall protection in general industry
  • Personal fall arrest system (PFAS) best practices for lanyards and lifelines—and what not to do with snap hooks
  • The proper use for PFAS deceleration devices and anchors, and best practices for PFAS inspections
  • Acceptable falling object protections
  • Training requirements for dockboards, rope descent systems, and designated areas
  • What to do now to prepare for the November 17, 2017 and November 17, 2018 compliance deadlines for:

    • Permanent anchorages for rope descent systems
    • Installation of personal fall-arrest or ladder safety systems on
    • New fixed ladders over 24 feet and on replacement ladders/ladder sections

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.

The live 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.
