Fall protection in General Industry (GI) has long been a source of confusion within the OSHA regulations. Unlike their Construction and Maritime counterparts, the GI employer does not have a dedicated fall protection subpart or comprehensive rules. Though it is widely understood that fall protection starts at 4 feet for GI, there are still some ambiguous situations where there are no recognized worker protection standards.

This webinar with expert speaker Sheldon Primus, MPA, COSS will focus on the hazard of fall protection and the various ways to protect the workers. Additionally, you will learn the regulations that can affect them currently and in the future as they relate to falling protection in GI.

Attending this webinar will give you a clear understanding of your responsibility for fall protection, understanding of OSHA's regulatory actions, and guidance for a comprehensive fall protection program. You will be given the tools to have a well-rounded and compliant fall hazard protection program and build added value to the organization by having a safer work environment, increased worker buy-in, program compliance, practical insight to fall protection regulations and a manageable hazard control plan.
