Webinar now available On-Demand.

Length: 1 hour


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Attend this insightful webinar to discover compliance tips for existing rules on walking-working surfaces, as well as updates on proposed changes to those rules.



With OSHA’s proposed changes to its general industry Walking-Working Surfaces and Fall Protection Rule and upcoming public hearing, you might be wondering how the amendments will impact your facilities. With confusion still persisting from the 2017 updates to the standard, many safety professionals are concerned that additional revisions will further muddy the waters. From changes to stair and railing requirements, to technical corrections and resolution of conflicts with consensus standards, the pending modifications will be addressed. The program will also address how the 2017 rule has been enforced since its inception, and where the pitfalls are for compliance.

Join us on August 19, 2021, when attorney and safety professional Adele L. Abrams will shed light on the detailed requirements of the walking-working surfaces rules–old and new–helping you develop a strategy for compliance, injury prevention, and preparation for the changes ahead in the new Administration for OSHA enforcement emphasis and regulatory mandates.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the current requirements of OSHA’s Walking-Working Surfaces and Fall Protection Rule for general industry;
  • Understand how the OSHA rule impacts PPE for fall protection, worker training requirements, and physical facility design;
  • Implement a strategy for complying with those requirements, and identifying pitfalls that can lead to costly citations;
  • Determine how OSHA’s proposed changes to the standard will impact your facility;
  • And much more!
