On December 16, 2010, OSHA rescinded policy directive STD 03-00-001, the Plain Language Revision of OSHA Instruction STD 3.1, Interim Fall Protection Compliance Guidelines for Residential Construction, dated June 18, 1999.
The old guidance, which allowed employers engaged in certain residential construction activities to use specified alternative methods of fall protection, was replaced by STD 03-11-002, Compliance Guidance for Residential Construction.
The Agency is also reviewing all letters of interpretation that referenced the cancelled directive and will either revise, or withdraw, them as needed.
