The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has determined that the new residential fall protection standard passed in Arizona reduces worker protection to a level that is not at least as effective as the federal rule, and plans to take action to reject the standard.

The Arizona state plan (ADOSH) has been notified that they have 30 days to provide information that supports the changes made to their residential fall protection standard.

A bill before the Arizona Legislature addresses this, but federal OSHA feels that the current proposal is inadequate.
