Labor & Industries has scheduled four public hearings across the state in February regarding rules changes meant to prevent injury from falls on the job.

The new rules are scheduled for adoption by the end of March, 2020 to be effective on June 1 of this year.

The proposed rules affect a broad swath of WR membership including shipbuilding, janitorial services, warehouse/box store order pickers, automotive and generally any business with a worksite requiring guardrails or cover to prevent falls.
