The Fall Protection Standard also known as Slips, Trips, and Falls will help employers prevent employees from falling off of overhead platforms, elevated work stations, or into holes in the floor and walls. The OSHA standard complies with 29 CFR §1910.29 & §1926.503.
OSHA requires that fall protection be provided at elevations of four feet in general industry workplaces, and six feet in the construction industry. In addition, OSHA requires that fall protection be provided when working over dangerous equipment and machinery, regardless of the fall distance.
