OSHA's Inspection Priorities for 2018: Preparation Strategies for High Target Industries -

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how the OSHA inspection process will unfold in 2018, and what inspection priorities you need to prepare for to avoid OSHA fines this year.

Every year, OSHA provides guidance on where they will focus resources in the upcoming year, including inspection targets. Typically, the agency prioritizes high incident industries, organizations with fatalities, and any industries or organizations with repeat violations. The OSHA under the Trump administration is no different; however, the process is somewhat more fluid than in recent years.

One “tell” is that OSHA under Trump will not use press releases as frequently to shame employers while citations and proposed fines are still in the adjudication process. Although inspections will continue as in past years, there will likely be a reduction in the number of inspections in favor of more “event-driven” inspections, changes in National Emphasis Programs, and a shift toward compliance assistance and cooperative efforts such as VPP, training, and outreach.

Use this on-demand webinar when Adele Abrams, an experienced safety professional and attorney based in the Washington, DC area, will share with attendees her wealth of OSHA knowledge as it relates to inspections, and what we can expect from the agency in 2018.

You’ll learn:

  • The latest developments impacting the OSHA inspection process
  • How the current political climate could impact OSHA’s 2018 inspection and enforcement priorities and processes
  • Key agency activities from 2017, especially those that will have an impact on 2018 inspection considerations
  • How personal or structural changes that have occurred within OSHA could affect your safety program requirements
  • Where and how OSHA will target time and resources on the inspection front in 2018
  • How to identify and prepare for both programmed (site-specific targeting and emphasis programs) and unprogrammed (triggered by complaints, imminent danger, accidents, and referrals) OSHA inspections
