OSHA’s Revised Inspection Priorities for 2019: Preparation Strategies for High Target Industries

Live Webinar: Tuesday, January 8, 2019

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

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to prepare for OSHA’s inspection priorities for 2019, and how to appropriately and effectively respond to each type of OSHA inspection.

ALERT: OSHA has revamped its use of the site-specific targeting program for inspection prioritization, putting establishments with high injury rates at risk of inspection and citation for 2019. 

In addition, the rules on severe injury reporting and the e-filing of injury data by many employers have changed the routes by which OSHA can knock on your door. With maximum penalties for a single willful or repeat violation now at $129,336, citations can be costlier than ever before.

Join us on January 8 for an all-new webinar on OSHA’s inspection priorities for 2019. You’ll learn what the current enforcement initiatives cover, how inspection priorities and practices have changed since the Obama era, pending litigation and legislation that may further change how OSHA enforces its rules, and what you can do to prepare today.

Our presenter, Adele Abrams, an experienced safety professional and attorney based in the Washington, DC area, will share her wealth of OSHA knowledge as it relates to inspections, and what we can expect from the agency in 2019.

You’ll also learn:

  • The circumstances that can put your facility at higher risk of inspection and citation
  • When OSHA can issue citations without an inspection warrant
  • How OSHA prioritizes its “severe injury reports” to determine when to open an inspection
  • The distinctions between different types of OSHA inspections, how these have changed in the current administration, and the legal scope of each 
  • The personal criminal liability agents of management may face as a result of OSHA enforcement
  • Circumstances under which OSHA can issue subpoenas for documents and compel testimony prior to issuing citations or commencing litigation
  • And more!
