    DescriptionIt has been more than a year since many of the requirements under the revision to 1910, Subpart D became effective.   If this change follows the normal adoption curve, there were a few safety rock stars fully prepared for the changes and totally compliant by January 17, 2017.  Those in the middle of the bell curve were aware of it, and may have attempted a few key procedure adjustments.  The last group, we’ll call them the laggards, remain oblivious, and resist any effort we make to educate them.   If you are part of the latter group, don’t come.  You’re not a bad person, it’s just better that you do something that makes happy. 

    As most of us fall somewhere in the middle, a little review of what “should” have changed as a result of the Subpart D makeover would be helpful at this point.   Following a quick review of purpose and scope, we will focus on requirements for hazard assessment, inspection, fall protection and training.  As is often the case with fresh rule making, there are a few loose ends that would benefit from a letter of interpretation or two.  Those areas will be discussed.  A short, confidential survey on WWS will be sent out to registrants just prior to this session.  The results will be shared during the presentation.  Your help in taking a few minutes to fill that out will be appreciated greatly.
