817 Preparing Your Organization for Changes from the New OSHA Administration

A frequently asked question is “What can I expect from the new OSHA Administration?” This seminar will give you insight into what changes are likely to take place as the new administration gets established. You will learn how OSHA enforcement, regulatory changes, policy, and legislative mandates will change the way of doing business for safety and health. The agency is implementing many new emphasis programs, revising its field procedures for inspections, and working on adoption of many significant new rules. In addition, Congress has been vigilant in its oversight of OSHA and has changes in mind to \"reform\" how OSHA operates in terms of criminal prosecutions, civil penalties and whistleblower protection. You will get the information you need to manage safety and health effectively and avoid personal and corporate liability arising from workplace conditions and practices.
