What You Need to Know about the OSHA National Emphasis Program for Fall Protection
OSHA has developed a National Emphasis Program to prevent falls—the leading cause of fatal workplace injuries and the violation the agency cites most frequently during inspections. OSHA can now open inspections whenever they see someone working at height — not just when they observe violations or have other reasons to visit your site. This session will help participants prepare for a potential OSHA visit, evaluate gaps in your fall protection program, and provide meaningful recommendations to improve safety.
