For the Walking and Working Surfaces Standard, OSHA is seeking further comments on the issues of rolling stock and self-propelled, motorized equipment, in addition to qualified climbers, rung width on fixed ladders, hierarchy of fall protection controls, scaffolds and controlled descent devices, and anchors for suspended work.
For the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Standard, OSHA is interested in comments on whether the agency should prohibit the use of body belts for fall arrest and on fall protection amendments to several existing general industry standards. For more information, visit www.osha.gov.
