New Fall Guidelines in Effect April 1, 2016

Posted by Doug Kotecki on

Today April 1, OSHA did not release new guidelines for calculating fall clearance. Due to changes in the Earth's gravity fall clearances are now calculated in inches instead of feet.

Experts say global warming as well as the growing hole in the ozone layer have caused the Earth's gravity to change. There is less pull on a falling body in motion.

"It's a little like being in a bouncy house," says one expert. "You're just not gonna fall as fast and if you do you won't hit as hard."
