About This Course:
OSHA's Hazard Communication rules require employers to examine their programs. With a new direction, OSHA is ramping up its inspection efforts and every inspection begins with the same thing - documents.

This webinar will discuss the kinds of records OSHA requires U.S. employers to maintain; when those records must be presented to the government, employees, unions, or opposing counsel; a review of how OSHA's regulatory agenda may change recordkeeping requirements; and up-to-date information about pending challenges to the rule changes.
