Date: Tuesday, October 15th, 2019Time: 2pm ET / 11am PT
Duration: 1 hour
Sponsored by: Safety Services


The Trump Administration’s disinterest in OSHA does not mean that nothing has changed for employers.

They must deal with new State-OSHA regulations, major Court and Commission decisions affecting citations and procedures, and a dizzying array of inspection practices by different OSHA Area Offices and State-Plans. A company’s main focus must be on protecting its workers, but you cannot ignore the parallel tracks of OSHA regulation.This Webinar’s Key Takeaways:

  • The effect of open leadership positions, underfunding, understaffing, and resulting inconsistent training.
  • Managing the scope of an inspection and a renewed importance on procedures such as conducting dual respiratory monitoring.
  • Increasing challenges posed by subs, labor providers, and working on a multiemployer site.
