OSHA’s Top Regulatory Risks of 2019: What to Do Right Now to Avoid Fines

Live Webinar: Tuesday, December 11, 2018

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn the top OSHA regulatory risks for 2019, and what to do right now to minimize the risk of costly fines, penalties, and operational disruption.



OSHA’s regulatory and enforcement agenda for 2019 should be top of mind for every employer across the country. Based on the rhetoric from the 2016 presidential campaign trail many employers may have expected OSHA enforcement under a Trump Administration to contract significantly from the aggressive model of President Obama’s OSHA. The reality, however, is quite different. Enforcement is still a key component of OSHA’s mission and is proceeding as usual. Without a Trump-appointed Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA in place, career OSHA staff have considerable influence over the agency’s direction, including enforcement and regulatory priorities.

This program will examine the types of enforcement policies and targeted safety inspections OSHA is likely to undertake in 2019 through its national and local emphasis programs (NEPs and LEPs), regulatory developments, and other initiatives. Past NEPs have covered a broad range of safety issues from amputations to silica process safety management and more. What NEPs are in store for 2019? What LEPs will OSHA’s regional and local offices implement in the coming year? Likewise, we will explore the uncertain future of OSHA’s controversial electronic injury recordkeeping rule, both in terms of data submission and the latest guidance surrounding post-accident drug testing and safety incentive programs.

Join us on December 11 when Eric J. Conn, Chair of the national OSHA Practice at Conn Maciel Carey, will shed light on the top OSHA regulatory risks you’ll face in 2019 and what you can—and should—do to minimize your organization’s vulnerability to costly fines and penalties.

You’ll learn: 
           

  • Recent OSHA enforcement data and trends—and the future of OSHA enforcement
  • Key emphasis areas to address to minimize your risk of citations
  • The latest rulemaking and deregulatory developments and predictions
  • Other significant OSHA policy issues to track in the New Year
  • And much more!
