OSHA announced this week that there will be revisions to the walking-working surfaces and Personal Protective Equipment Standards (PPE) to prevent injuries from slips, trips and falls.  Per Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA, Dr David Michaels,“ this proposal addresses workplace hazards that are a leading cause of work related injuries and deaths.”  The goal is to help prevent an estimated annual 20 workplace fatalities and more than 3,500 injuries serious enough for people to miss work.
