Having shared a series of predictions during our January webinar regarding how OSHA would tackle the COVID-19 pandemic and reshape its priorities under new leadership during the first year of the Biden Administration, we will now take stock of what has happened at DOL and OSHA during the first months of the Biden Administration, discuss surprise developments, and look ahead at the remainder of 2021 and beyond. We will take a close look at senior leadership now in place or on the way, and analyze what those appointments likely mean for employers. We will also review OSHA’s efforts to address the COVID-19 pandemic, including the new healthcare-focused emergency temporary standard and updated guidance for everyone else. We will also examine Pres. Biden’s efforts to make good on his promises to increase OSHA’s budget, grow the number of inspectors and generally ramp up enforcement. We will also review key developments in OSHA’s rulemaking agenda.
Participants in this webinar will learn the following:
- Status of Presidential Appointees and other key organizational changes at OSHA
- How the Pres. Biden’s OSHA has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic
- OSHA’s Regulatory Agenda, including rulemaking and policy setting priorities around COVID-19 and other hazards
- New or renewed enforcement initiatives and emphasis programs
