Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 29 USC 655(b); 40 USC 333
CFR Citation: 29 CFR 1926

Abstract: OSHA issued an ANPRM to gather information on fall protection issues regarding certain construction processes such as residential home building, precast concrete operations and post frame construction. The issues relate to the fall protection rules as they now apply to roofing work, residential construction operations, climbing reinforcement steel and vendors delivering materials to construction projects. These issues have arisen since OSHA revised the fall protection standard in August 1994. The comment period on the ANPRM closed January 24, 2000. OSHA is now evaluating comments to determine whether further action is required.
