OSHA’s NEW Proposed Rule 1910.156 Emergency Response rule

March 13, 2024 - OSHA has published its new proposed 1910.156 Emergency Response rule. The proposed rule modernizes and replaces OSHA's existing 1910.156 Fire Brigades standard, expanding it to include fire/rescue, Emergency Medical Services, and technical rescue. It will affect both workers with primary duties and those with collateral duties (workplace emergency response teams). Over two dozen consensus standards are being incorporated into the proposed rule. From new firefighting and PPE requirements, to EMS, to technical search and rescue, this rule change dramatically affects emergency response operations for private employers -- and for municipal emergency services in states with state OSHA plans.
