Since fall protection historically has been the most-violated OSHA standard, the agency has updated a final rule on walking-working surfaces. Under the new rule, employers have more flexibility when selecting fall protection systems that are most suitable for their workers. For example, the use of rope descent systems up to 300 feet above a surface level is now permitted. Personal fall arrest systems can no longer include body belts, which basically are waist belts with D-rings or attachment points
