New OSHA Penalty Policies Effective August 1, 2016: How To Reduce The Risk Of Fines Under Increased Threat Of Inspections And Citations

As of August 1, 2016, OSHA penalties increase by a staggering 80% (up to $127,000), so there’s a real risk that your organization could face increased citations and penalties as the result of OSHA inspections.

But that’s not the only reason safety managers should be concerned. OSHA administrative procedures could significantly increase average penalties. And it’s likely that OSHA will increase the issuance of “egregious” violations, which could put more employers into OSHA’s Severe Violator Enforcement Program (SVEP).

Given the increased threat of OSHA inspections and costly penalties, it’s critical to implement a process for ensuring that you’re prepared for the known and unforeseen things that can unfold during an inspection.

Join us for a webinar on how to review your current OSHA inspection process, or lack thereof, to see how they stack up to the recommendations of a skilled safety attorney who regularly advises clients on how to reduce the risk of costly penalties during OSHA inspections.

Attorney Adele Abrams will teach you the ins and outs of OSHA's new penalty provisions, how to explain to senior management the real threat these penalties pose to your company, and how to prepare and protect the organization in the face of additional penalty and fine exposure.

Learning Objectives

  • The practical impact of the new OSHA’s revised penalties in effect as of August 1, 2016

  • The types of OSHA inspections your organization may be most at risk for, from the programmed to the unprogrammed ones
  • How to prepare for site-specific targeting through National Emphasis Programs and inspections triggered by events such as employee complaints, imminent danger investigations, and more
  • The phases of a typical OHSA inspection
  • Strategies for preparing for an OSHA inspection, including “mandatory” records that need to be available and must-have inspection tools
  • Inspection do’s and don’ts to ensure success, including prudent walk-around rules and other practices to adopt
  • How to manage a successful closing conference
  • Current citation and violation risks you will now face as a result of the Severe Violators Enforcement Program (SVEP), civil penalties, criminal penalties, the DOL/DOJ Memorandum of Understanding on Criminal Prosecution, federal criminal penalties, and OSHA state plan actions
  • Recommendations on how to preserve affirmative defenses during an inspection
  • Best practices for developing proactive strategies before the OSHA inspection

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.
