OSHA recently updated its compliance directive and enforcement policy related to safety and health issues associated with work on Communications Towers.  This update follows a letter that OSHA sent to employers reminding them of their duty to (1) provide appropriate fall protection to employees; (2) make sure that fall protection is consistently used; and (3) adequately train employees on the use and importance of the equipment.  The new directive provides guidance on “the proper use of hoist and other fall arrest systems and includes detailed information on how to hoist people safely.”  To read more, go to https://www.osha.gov/doc/topics/communicationtower/index.html.
