EXPERT TIPS ON SAFETY FOR ALL
OSHA Training Update for Fall Prevention
OSHA Fall Prevention
Slips and falls have been one of the leading causes of workplace injuries for decades, and OSHA is continuing their efforts to lower these rates. In 2016, OSHA updated its walking and working standards as well as its fall protection standards for general industry. By requiring employers to identify and plan for fall hazards, OSHA hopes to use a mix of training and proactive behaviors to make workplaces safer.
