Description:

For anyone thinking that costly OSHA penalties might decrease under the Trump Administration, think again. During the last 5 complete months under the Obama administration, there were 260 enforcement cases with penalties greater than $40,000, but a five month period beginning with the January 20 swearing in of President Trump resulted in 376 cases with penalties that met or exceeded that same monetary threshold.

Since OSHA’s new penalty scheme took effect August 1, 2016, safety managers have had to deal with the growing threat of their companies being placed on the hook for crippling financial penalties in the event of OSHA citations. These statistics underscore that OSHA’s skyrocketing penalties are continuing up 80%, with a potential maximum fine of $127,000 and noncompliance is increasingly expensive for employers.

Now, employers are increasingly vulnerable to being inducted into a club no one wants to be a part of: OSHA’s Severe Violator Enforcement Program (SVEP). With inspections proceeding as usual and penalties on the rise, it’s critical for employers to put into motion a process for anticipating the unknown or unforeseen scenarios that may occur during an inspection.

Join us when Attorney Eric J. Conn, a featured presenter at Safety Summit 2017, and Attorney Kate McMahon, both of Washington, D.C. based Conn Maciel Carey LLP, will cover the latest strategies for preparing for and managing OSHA inspections to avoid costly citations. This webinar is designed for safety managers looking for valuable planning tips and fresh ideas for safety policies to reduce your risk of citations.

You’ll learn:

  • The scope of OSHA’s new civil penalty provisions
  • How to communicate to the C-suite about the financial threats your organization could face if OSHA comes knocking
  • The dos and don’ts for inspections, including prudent walk-around rules and other practices to manage the inspection from start to finish
  • Strategies for reducing the risk of costly penalties during OSHA inspections
  • Recommendations for preserving affirmative defenses during an inspection
  • Best practices for developing proactive strategies before the OSHA inspection
  • And much more!
BONUS: For attending, you’ll also get two valuable handouts, Conn Maciel Carey LLP’s Toolkit: Prepare for and Manage OSHA Inspections and OSHA Injury Reporting Flow Chart.
