OSHA's Personal Protective Equipment Standards - Top 5 Reasons to Get it Right and Top 5 Employer Mistakes

Presented by Micah Smith, Aaron Gelband Dan Deacon on June 16th at 1pm ET regarding:


Personal Protective Equipment (“PPE”) is an essential aspect of every safety and health program, helping to safeguard employees from a variety of workplace hazards. Its importance has been especially highlighted during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Given the important role that PPE plays, OSHA requires employers to assess their workplaces to determine whether hazards exist necessitating PPE and, if so, to select appropriate PPE, train employees how to properly use it and ensure that it is actually being worn. Failing to do this can lead to avoidable injuries, illnesses, and even fatalities. But with such vague and broadly stated requirements, many employers struggle to conduct compliant hazard assessments, understand when PPE is required, select the appropriate PPE, and even identify who is responsible for providing PPE in the first place.

During this webinar, participants will learn about:

  • 5 reasons employers should prioritize complying with OSHA’s PPE requirements

  • 5 common PPE-related mistakes employers make

  • PPE issues implicated by COVID-19 in the workplace

  • Steps employers can take to mitigate PPE-related hazards and violations

For better or for worse, America is going green and its acceptance of marijuana is increasing rapidly.

  • The changing legal landscape regarding medical and recreational marijuana in states around the country and the District of Columbia

  • How state marijuana laws affect your federal compliance obligations under the DOT and other agencies
