OSHA compliance issues have been long ignored in the due diligence process for mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. With OSHA’s focus on follow-up inspections and Repeat citations, and expanding the concept of successor OSHA liability, it is a topic that should no longer be left out of the due diligence process. This webinar delved into the current landscape of successor liability under the OSH Act, explained what safety and health obligations a new employer may assume as a result of past conduct by a predecessor employer, and provided tips and strategies for managing OSHA compliance related due diligence.
Participants learned about:
- Successor and Repeat Liability Based on Prior Employers’ Violations
- A New Employer’s Potential Duty to Address OSHA Penalties and Abatement of a Predecessor
- Requirements to Transfer and Retain a Predecessor’s Safety Records
- Safety-related Due Diligence & Other Strategies
