Fed OSHA Seeking Response from AZ DOSH in Residential Fall Protection Complaint

Posted in on Thu, Dec 20, 2012

In response to ASSE’s effort on behalf of its Arizona members to see that the Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health enforce federal OSHA’s residential fall protection standard,  ASSE received a letter from OSHA’s Phoenix Area Office outlining OSHA’s Complaint About State Program Administration (CASPA) investigation.  ADOSH has 30 days to respond to OSHA’s findings and requirements.  In the last minutes of its session this year, the Arizona legislature passed into law of Senate Bill 1441 that made sure Arizona employers cannot be required to protected construction workers from falls under elevations of 15 feet, which is 9 feet more than OSHA’s standard.
