ADA Website Compliance Issues - Best Strategies for Employers

Presented by Jordan Schwartz and Megan Shaked on May 18th at 1 pm ET

While respiratory protection has been top of mind in 2020 due to COVID-19, OSHA’s respiratory protections requirements apply to wide range of industrial hygiene hazards, from hazardous chemicals to insufficient oxygen environments, and harmful dusts, smoke, gases, and vapors. Given that airborne hazards such as these may cause death or serious diseases like cancer, OSHA requires employers to assess their workplaces to determine whether hazards exist that necessitate respiratory protection and if so, to select the appropriate respirator, train employees how to properly use them, and ensure that the respirator is actually being worn. As such, it should come as no surprise that OSHA’s respiratory protection standard consistently ranks among the 5 most frequently cited standards each year.

This webinar will highlight the respiratory protection implications of COVID-19 in the workplace, discuss workplace circumstances requiring respirators, the most frequent common respiratory protection program mistakes employers make, explain some of the most misunderstood provisions of the applicable OSHA standards, and identify strategies to limit exposure to the most common respiratory protection violations.

Participants in this webinar will learn:
 

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

  • 5 common respiratory protection program mistakes employers make

  • Respiratory protection issues implicated by COVID-19 in the workplaces

  • Steps employers can take to mitigate respiratory protection hazards and potential OSHA citations

In any given year MSHA inspections are common and required. Depending on the operation, MSHA will be on-site at least two times per year for a surface mine, and at least 4 times per year at an underground operation. But what happens when MSHA’s presence on site is more targeted, whether to investigate complaints of discrimination or interference with a miner’s rights under the Mine Act, or to look into the alleged personal culpability of a member of mine management? In these circumstances, the individual managers who typically act as the operator’s representative can be caught off guard and even be the target of the investigations This presentation will explore the framework of these investigation, and strategies for managing the investigation while also protecting the rights and defenses of individuals and the company.
 

Participants in this webinar will learn:
 

  • What are §105 or §110 investigation and how are they initiated

  • How to manage a special investigation as a mine operator or independent contractor

  • What types of actions are protected by §105
