About This Course:
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.

To address these troubling statistics, OSHA issued the Walking-Working Surfaces Rule (29 CFR 1910, subpart D), effective as of 2017. The complex rule, which affects all general industry workplaces, covers all walking-working surfaces, including fixed ladders and rope descent systems, and addresses requirements for fall protection systems; employee training; and the design, performance, and use of personal protective equipment (PPE) like personal fall protection systems. Despite being the law of the land for almost two years, the rule is still presenting challenges for safety professionals nationwide.
