Addendum to the Oregon module of NRCA's Fall Protection Program, Serving Up Safety

Purchasers and users of NRCA's fall-protection training program, Serving Up Safety, who work in Oregon should be aware that as of Jan. 1, 2017, Oregon has lowered the threshold height for requiring fall protection to 6 feet from 10 feet. At heights of 6 feet or greater, employers now must implement one of the fall-protection systems specified in the Oregon regulations and described in the Oregon module to be in compliance. Also, as of Oct. 1, 2017, slide guards no longer will be allowed as a primary fall-protection system under Oregon rules. Slide guards still may be installed and used on steep-slope roofs as work platforms, but they may not be the sole means of fall protection for workers on such roofs. A personal fall-arrest or fall-restraint system or other suitable fall protection must be used to protect workers from falls.
