Meeting New OHS Employer Compliance, Documentation & Regulatory Updates To Mitigate Legal Liabilities

Webinar Background & Agenda:

When it comes to occupational health and safety, 2024 is shaping up to be a significant year in terms of OSHA enforcement, rulemaking and new initiatives. As the United States heads into a presidential and congressional election, regulatory activity and enforcement has become a flashpoint politically, potentially threatening the survival of major OSHA activities on the current regulatory agenda. This session provides a primer on OSHA powers and enforcement initiatives. It will outline the priorities for the Biden Administration, the forecast for new rules, and the prospects for use of the Congressional Review Act. Pending legislation to abolish the agencies OSHA and NIOSH and rescind the 1970 OSH Act will be discussed, as well as democratic measures to expand OSHA;s authority into the public sector workplace and to enhance whistleblower protections and strengthen criminal penalties.

This program will capture OHS updates including:


  • New 2024 regulatory agenda, and status of rulemaking activities including:
  1. Workplace violence prevention
  2. Heat illness prevention
  3. Changes to lockout/tagout
  4. Powered industrial trucks
  5. Mechanical power press rules
  6. Tree care standards
  7. Progress on infectious disease prevention regulation.
