OSHA’s 2021 Year in Review and 2022 Forecast [Webinar Recording]

On January 12, 2022, the Partners in Conn Maciel Carey’s national OSHA Practice Group on presented the kickoff event in Conn Maciel Carey’s 2022 OSHA Webinar series.  This first program of the year, as is tradition, was OSHA’s 2021 Year in Review and 2022 Forecast.

As we kickoff Year 2 of the Biden Administration, it is time to look back and take stock of what we learned from and about OSHA during the very eventful year that just concluded.  And more importantly, it is time to look ahead and assess what to expect from OSHA now that OSHA’s full senior leadership team is in place and ready to put its stamp on the agency.

In this webinar, the Partners in Conn Maciel Carey’s national OSHA Practice Group reviewed OSHA enforcement, rulemaking, and personnel developments from 2021. We also discussed the top OSHA issues employers should monitor and prepare for in the New Year.

Participants in this webinar learned about:

  • 2021 OSHA enforcement and rulemaking updates
  • OSHA leadership and organizational developments
  • The future of OSHA enforcement during the Biden Administration
  • COVID-19 enforcement and rulemaking under the Biden Administration
  • Rulemaking initiatives and predictions
  • Significant OSHA policy issues to watch out for in the New Year

We are pleased to share these links to a copy of the slides and a recording of the webinar.

The Supreme Court just tied OSHA’s hands behind its back in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Yesterday, the Supreme Court reinstituted a stay of OSHA’s Vaccinate-or-Test emergency rule, and sent a pretty clear signal that the rule would not survive a full review on the merits of the dozens of legal challenges to the OSHA rule. Read all about the Court’s fractured decision, the potential implications of the decision on the State OSH Plans, OSHA’s reaction to the decision, and what COVID-19 enforcement may look like going forward in this article on Conn Maciel Carey’s OSHA Defense Report blog.
