DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AD28 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Walking Working Surfaces 

OSHA has received feedback from stakeholders indicating that several regulatory provisions of the 2016 final rule on Walking-Working Surfaces (81 FR 82494) are unclear.  The agency plans to correct a formatting error in Table D-2 and also revise the language of the requirements for stair rail systems to make them clearer and reflect OSHA's original intent.
