So, why did OSHA rescind the old directive? Well, the truth is … it hasn't been working that well. Statistics still show that fatalities from falls are consistently high for residential construction activities.
And, the Agency never intended the old directive to be a permanent policy. All along, OSHA stated that the guidance would remain in effect until further notice or until completion of a new formal rulemaking effort.
And since that time, there have been significant advances in the types and capability of commercially available fall protection equipment available for use in residential construction.
