Description:

In May 2017, OSHA proposed close to $1 million in fines and penalties against two companies in unrelated cases stemming from machine safety hazard and guarding failures. Also, according to the FY 2018 Congressional Budget Justification for OSHA, funding isn’t expecting a drastic change. The report indicates the Trump Administration is recommending only a 1.7% funding-level reduction from FY 2017.

When a new president takes over, there can be reciprocal changes in the emphasis, focus and direction of regulators serving under new leadership. Under previous Republican administrations, the agency has focused its efforts on compliance assistance, but, to date, OSHA enforcement is still going strong. That means it’s imperative to keep up with where OSHA is focusing its enforcement attention so you understand your biggest risks for penalties and fines for noncompliance going forward.

Join us when two skilled OSHA attorneys will provide an in-depth analysis of what’s happening on the OSHA enforcement front and what’s likely on the long-term horizon.

You’ll learn:

  • Changes to an OSHA enforcement approach likely to occur, and their practical impact
  • How third parties could complicate proposed changes to existing enforcement priorities
  • The likely timeline for changes to OSHA enforcement priorities
  • Which new enforcement areas OSHA is likely to focus on—and how those relate to the priorities it currently has in place
  • What your company should do in light of new OSHA oversight—are the changes you should make in your approach to compliance
