Falls from heights and on the same level (a working surface) are among the leading causes of serious work-related injuries and deaths.

OSHA has issued a final rule on Walking-Working Surfaces and Personal Fall Protection Systems to better protect workers in general industry from these hazards by updating and clarifying standards and adding training and inspection requirements.

The rule updates general industry standards addressing slip, trip, and fall hazards and adds requirements for personal fall protection systems.

During this training, participants will learn about the new rule and how to recognize and minimize fall hazards.
