Abstract: OSHA is considering whether to propose amendments to its existing standards for fall protection in construction. OSHA is also considering raising a number of issues about the fall protection rules as they now apply to roofing work, residential construction operations, climbing reinforcement steel and vendors delivering materials (for example, roofing materials). These issues have arisen since OSHA revised the fall protection standard in August 1994.
