New Arizona-Specific Residential Fall Protection
Effective March 27, 2012

On March 27, 2012, Arizona Governor Janice K. Brewer signed Senate Bill 1441, Fall Protection for Residential Construction. A legislative summary of the requirements can be found using this link: Legislative Summary of Requirements.

A Resolution was presented to the Industrial Commission at their April 25, 2012 meeting to adopt SB 1441 and to direct ADOSH to file the Notice of Exempt Rulemaking with the Secretary of State. The Exempt Rulemaking was published in the Arizona Register on Friday, May 18, 2012, with an effective date of May 25, 2012.

As of May 25, 2012, employers working in the residential construction industry--and who fall within ADOSH’s jurisdiction--are required to comply with the fall protection requirements contained in SB 1441. Employers whose work does not fall within ADOSH’s jurisdiction (e.g., contractors working on Indian lands) must comply with federal OSHA’s residential fall protection enforcement policy.
