OSHA has updated their Fall Protection in Construction informational booklet. Below is a brief overview of the intended purpose of the resource pulled from the booklet itself:
This informational booklet is intended to provide an overview of frequently cited OSHA standards in the constrcution industry. This publication does not alter or determine compliance responsibilities, which are sret forth in OSHA Standards and the "Occupational Safety and Health Act."
Employers and workers in the 27 states and territories that operate their own OSHA-approved workplace safety and health plans should check with their state safety and heatlh agency. Their state may be enforcing standards and other procedures that, while "at least as effective as" Federal OSHA standards, are not always identical to the federal requirements.
