OSHA Releases More Pliable Fall Protection Standards

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a new ruling to help prevent falling accidents on the job. Under the new rule on Walking-Working and Personal Fall Protection Systems, effective January 17, 2017, employers are required to implement systems for personal fall protection that best suits their individual needs. According to OSHA, the new ruling will prevent 29 deaths and over 5,842 injuries per year and will protect an estimated 112 million employees.

What Employers Should Know About Workers' Compensation

Employers know that they must purchase insurance that will provide benefits to anyone under their employment that suffers a work related injury. This law provides protection for both parties; employers don't have to worry about being sued by an employee, and employees get the benefits that they need no matter who was at fault. This is just the first step, however, in protecting yourself and your company from workplace injury and unwanted lawsuits.
