This year, OSHA issued a Final Rule that updated the General Industry Walking-Working Surfaces and Fall Protection standards. The rule was intended to better protect workers from slips, trips, and falls, and also align the General Industry with comparable OSHA construction standards.

Learn from industry experts how to comply with the new regulations, while reducing hazards and injuries.  This webinar will cover the new changes, including:

  • Practical explanations of the changes to the rules and how they affect your business
  • Deadlines and new regulatory changes that must be implemented now and on an ongoing basis.
  • Inspection, documentation, and training requirements
  • Details regarding acceptable fall protection (personal protective equipment) options
  • Best practices for incorporating these changes to your business operations with the least amount of impact
