DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AB62 Publication ID: Spring 2002 
Title: Fall Protection in the Construction Industry 
Abstract: OSHA issued an ANPRM to gather information on fall protection issues regarding certain construction processes such as residential home building, precast concrete operations and post frame construction. The issues relate to the fall protection rules as they now apply to roofing work, residential construction operations, climbing reinforcement steel and vendors delivering materials to construction projects. These issues have arisen since OSHA revised the fall protection standard in August 1994. OSHA has determined that additional information is needed.
