[Webinar] Lessons Learned from OSHA’s Updated Walking/Working Surfaces Rule

On Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 1 PM EST, join Micah Smith and Dan Deacon of Conn Maciel Carey’s national OSHA Practice Group, for a complimentary webinar: “Lessons Learned from OSHA’s Updated Walking/Working Surfaces Rule.” 

Slips, trips and falls are among the leading causes of work-related injuries and fatalities in the U.S., and continue to pose problems for all employers.  In November 2016, OSHA published its updated Walking / Working Surfaces (WWS) Standard, the regulation that governs slips, trips and fall hazards in general industry, after decades of attempts to amend the Rule.  The Final Rule was intended to modernize and harmonize OSHA’s various regulations focused on fall hazards, based on advances in fall protection technologies and methods, and lessons learned over the decades.

Now, just over a year since the new WWS Rule has gone into effect, many questions remain for employers with respect to modifying workplace practices and physical installations, especially those related to fall protection, fixed ladders, and scaffolding.

Participants in this webinar will learn:

  • The new requirements for managing slip, trip and fall hazards in general industry
  • Criteria for fall protection equipment and ladder safety
  • Updates to the General Industry Scaffold requirements
  • Effective dates for various aspects of the new Walking / Working Surfaces Standard
