The Trump Administration has indicated it will relax some of the OSHA regulations and enforcement practices put in place under the leadership of David Michaels. However, swift change to OSHA’s practices does not appear to be in order and uncertainty remains as to what employers should expect from OSHA under the new administration.

Penalty increases appear here to stay. In addition, OSHA’s recent changes to numerous regulations related to mandatory reporting, recordkeeping, whistleblower protection, electronic filings, retaliation, and drug testing policies remain in effect or have only received minor attention. Employer preparedness for an OSHA inspection remains a critical ingredient to avoid unwarranted fines and poor publicity. This seminar is specifically designed to provide critical updates on new OSHA regulations and enforcement practices. In addition, participants will walk through the OSHA inspection process with important insight on handling each phase of the inspection.

Participants will learn:
• Requirements under the new electronic reporting regulations;
• How to protect against increased enforcement of whistleblower protection;
• New recordkeeping and mandatory reporting regulations;
• The status on OSHA’s recent directive regarding drug testing policies and how to respond;
• How incentive/bonus programs may lead to OSHA citations;
• The steps involved in an OSHA inspection and how reduce exposure to fines;
• What to do when OSHA arrives;
• What to expect after OSHA completes its inspection; and
• What to do if you receive a citation.
