Walking-Working Surfaces: Practical Tips for Minimizing Slip and Fall Hazards and Avoiding Costly OSHA Violations - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to ace mandatory training requirements needed to comply with OSHA’s final walking-working surfaces and fall protection rule.


Slips, trips, and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents. According to OSHA, these accidents account for 15% of all accidental deaths, second only to motor vehicle accidents as a cause of fatalities. 

To address these troubling statistics, OSHA issued the Walking-Working Surfaces Rule (29 CFR 1910, subpart D), effective as of 2017. The complex rule, which affects all general industry workplaces, covers all walking-working surfaces, including fixed ladders and rope descent systems, and addresses requirements for fall protection systems; employee training; and the design, performance, and use of personal protective equipment (PPE) like personal fall protection systems. Despite being the law of the land for almost two years, the rule is still presenting challenges for safety professionals nationwide.

Use this on-demand webinar when Dave Wulff of Safety Resources will improve your understanding of the Walking-Working Surfaces Rule and help you develop strategies for upgrading your slip, trip, and fall prevention program; identifying and assessing workplace hazards; and mitigating associated exposures and injuries.

By attending this webinar, you will:

  • Recognize requirements that must be met under OSHA’s walking-working surfaces rule and related regulations to avoid costly violations 
  • Identify common causes of slips, trips, and falls, including ladder risks—and how to avoid them in your workplace
  • Adopt a systematic process for analyzing walking working surface/fall risks in general industry to help prevent injuries and comply with OSHA requirements
  • Develop contingency plans for foreseeable slip, trip, and fall incidents
  • Eliminate the guesswork from internal investigations and corrective actions after slip and fall incidents in your workplace
  • Implement strategies for approaching senior management to get the buy-in and support you need for improving walking-working surfaces safety
  • And much more!
