COVID-19 OSHA Enforcement & Regulatory Update

Presented by Aaron Gelb, Amanda Walker and Dan Deacon on Apr. 20th at 1 pm ET

Since the 2020 presidential election was decided, employers have waited, wondered, and watched for signs to see how President Biden’s OSHA would regulate and enforce COVID-19 safety in the workplace.  Although OSHA missed the March 15 deadline set by President Biden in his Day One Executive Order to issue its COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS), there have been several important developments providing a window into how OSHA will approach COVID-19 enforcement, most notably the agency’s launch of a COVID-19 National Emphasis Program (“COVID-19 NEP”) to focus the agency’s enforcement efforts on “companies that put the largest number of workers at serious risk of contracting the virus,” as well as prioritizing employers that “retaliate against workers for complaints about unsafe or unhealthy conditions, or for exercising other rights protected by federal law.”  OSHA also updated its Interim Enforcement Response Plan, which details how OSHA’s field staff should conduct COVID-related inspections, including whether they will resume in person inspections or continue conducting them remotely as has been the norm for the past year. 

Participants in this webinar will learn:
 

  • COVID-related OSHA enforcement from the start of the pandemic to now

  • COVID-related enforcement under Pres. Biden’s OSHA

  • Status and likely content of a Fed OSHA COVID ETS

  • State OSH Plan Emergency Rules and enforcement update

  • Strategy for avoiding and managing COVID-related citations

OSHA's Respiratory Protection Rules: Top 5 Reasons to Get it Right and Employer Mistakes

Presented by Aaron Gelb, Amanda Walker, Beeta Lashkari and Ashley D. Mitchell on May 12th 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
