Key Take Away :

This webinar will address the current Subpart D and I Rules and examine the General Duty Clause as it relates to some General Industry fall hazard activities and give you an understanding of OSHA’s stance on worker responsibili-ty for fall protection plan.

Overview :

Did you know that when it comes to managing fall protec-tion in the General Industry there is much confusion unlike the construction and maritime industries.

OSHA regulations traininghas published a notice of pro-posed rulemaking (NPRM) on subparts D and I of 29 CFR 1910, which contain occupational safety standards for general industry. OSHA believes the proposed rule will substantially reduce work-related injuries and deaths.

The proposed regulations involve a new mandate for fall hazard activities. In proposed subpart I, related to fall pro-tection personal protective equipment, specific language requires employers to identify all fall hazards related to work tasks and locations that put workers at risk for a fall.

While this has always been the case for other types of ha-zards where PPE is required, it is now explicitly required for fall hazards. Companies should begin to look closely at OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910 regulations to determine how they could impact their organizations, what changes will be required in existing fall protection programs, and if a proposed change actually looks feasible, consider imple-menting prior to regulation finalization.

Why Should You Attend :

A leading cause of worker-related injury and death comes from employees slipping, tripping, or falling from work surfaces such as floors, platforms, portable and fixed lad-ders, stairs, and ramps.

Employees may be exposed and unprotected from these hazards or may have a protection system in place but are using that system incorrectly and require workplace train-ing.

To combat the threats of slips, trips, and falls that em-ployees across industries may face, OSHA has published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on subparts D and I of 29 CFR 1910, which contain occupational safety stan-dards for general industry. OSHA believes the proposed rule will substantially reduce work-related injuries and deaths.

Join us for an in-depth webinar where you’ll learn how to evaluate your existing programs to determine improve-ment opportunities based on best practices, ANSI Z359, Version 3, and the proposed OSHA rules.
