Safety Standards for Fall Protection in the Construction Industry - Final rule [USA]
This final rule (effective 6 Feb. 1995) provides a revision of safety standards regulating fall protection systems and procedures in the construction industry (for original version, see 29 CFR 1926, CIS 89-21). Prevention of falls by persons and protection against falling objects are both covered. The final rule either maintains or increases minimum safety requirements, but it does so using more performance-oriented rather than specification-oriented language. It also consolidates and simplifies many existing provisions. There is extensive commentary and background information.
