In the Federal Register for November 18, 2016, OSHA published a long-delayed, extensive new regulation entitled "Walking-Working Surfaces and Personal Protective Equipment (Fall Protection Systems)." One provision of the regulation that may have escaped the notice of those who have not been following this regulatory process states: "Body belts are prohibited as part of a personal fall arrest system." As applied to powered industrial trucks with elevated personnel, including high-lift order pickers, this means that employers who have been using body belts as a way to arrest a potential fall must replace those body belts with full body harnesses (or comply in some other manner, such as guardrails).
