Title:

Intersection Of OSHA And ADA Compliance: Common Pitfalls In Addressing Workplace Hazards For Workers With Disabilities

SKU:WC-1025085
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Description:

Complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) and accompanying regulations can be extremely difficult for safety and HR managers. That’s because there are many issues to be reconciled under each of these federal laws, and if you’re not careful you run the risk of meeting the requirements for one law and not the other.

For example:

  • How do you safely accommodate an employee with a preexisting condition that may cause potential safety issues for that employee or other employees?
  • How do you perform a thorough job hazard and risk assessment that doesn’t leave you open to potential litigation?
  • How do you best address employees with chemical sensitivities?
The list of concerns and potential liability exposures goes on. Don’t get mired in the maze of intersecting compliance obligations under the OSHA and ADA.

Join us for an in-depth webinar led by nationally recognized OSHA attorney Adele Abrams, who will reveal strategies for complying with both sets of regulations in a way that is efficient and cost effective.

You’ll learn:
  • How intersecting ADA and OSHA regulations apply to your organization
  • How Equal Employment Opportunity Commission regulations define “direct threat to health and safety” and the impact the threat may have on hiring decisions
  • Examples of how ADA compliance obligations may intersect with OSHA general duty clause requirements
  • Pointers for managing return-to-work programs, job reassignments, and light-duty work to keep workers safe under OSHA and comply with ADA reasonable accommodation requirements
  • How to handle situations where workers may have epilepsy or other conditions that could impact their ability to safely perform essential job functions
  • How to tell if telecommuting might be a reasonable accommodation and how to ensure worker safety at a remote location
  • Best practices for developing and documenting what you’re doing to comply with OSHA and ADA requirements, including how to communicate with workers and the role written job descriptions play
  • Tips for performing job risk and hazard assessments that comply with both OSHA and ADA requirements!

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
