Navigating the Requirements under OSHA's Revised Walking-Working Surface Rule

Slips, trips and falls are among the leading causes of work-related injuries and fatalities in the U.S., and continue to pose problems for all employers. In November 2016, OSHA published its updated Walking / Working Surfaces (WWS) Standard, the regulation that governs slips, trips and fall hazards in general industry, after decades of attempts to amend the Rule. The Final Rule was intended to modernize and harmonize OSHA's various regulations focused on fall hazards, based on advances in fall protection technologies and methods, and lessons learned over the decades.
