Available Dates & Times


OSHA’s updated Walking-Working Surfaces and Personal Protective Equipment (Fall-Protection Systems) Standards for General Industry went into effect in January 2017. These new standards adopted many of the fall-protection requirements found in the construction standards that have been around since 1994. This session will discuss key components to this new standard and help employers understand how to apply them.
