DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AB80 Publication ID: Spring 2014 
Title: Walking Working Surfaces and Personal Fall Protection Systems (Slips, Trips, and Fall Prevention) 
Abstract: In 1990, OSHA published a proposed a rule (55 FR 13360) addressing slip, trip, and fall hazards and establishing requirements for personal fall protection systems. Slips, trips, and falls are among the leading causes of work-related injuries and fatalities. Since that time, new technologies and procedures have become available to protect employees from these hazards. The Agency has been working to update these rules to reflect current technology. As a result of issues raised in comments to the 1990 NPRM, OSHA published a notice to reopen the rulemaking for comment on May 2, 2003. Based on comments received on the 2003 notice, OSHA determined that the rule proposed in 1990 was out-of-date and did not reflect current industry practice or technology. The Agency published a second proposed rule on May 24, 2010, which reflected current information and increased consistency with other OSHA standards. Hearings were held on January 18 through 21, 2011.
