OH&S SafetyPod: Under the Microscope: OSHA's New Fall Protection Requirements

Editor Sydny Shepard sits down with LJB Inc. Principal Thom Kramer to discuss OSHA's updated regulations on fall protection and walking-working surfaces.

After a 40-year gap, updated OSHA regulations on fall protection and walking-working surfaces were published three years ago. Due to the magnitude of the changes and their related impacts, organizations are still working to understand and implement required changes to their fall protection projects, policies and programs.

I was lucky enough to sit down with Thom Kramer, Principal at LJB Inc. and a safety consultant and structural engineer with 24 years of experience, to discuss the most significant changes in the rule. In this episode we talk about walking working surfaces, PPE and building a safety culture that makes your workers feel like safety is a collective effort.
