OSHA’s New Enforcement and Inspection Protocol: Preparation Strategies for High-Target Industries

 

 

 

LIVE WEBINAR:
Thursday, June 16, 2016

1:30 to 3:00 pm Eastern
10:30 am to 12:00 pm Pacific


Assistant Secretary of Labor Dr. David Michaels recently said that OSHA is changing its strategy regarding inspections for FY 2016, focusing less on the number of inspections it completes—previously how they tracked and measured enforcement activity—and instead placing more emphasis on completing complex inspections.

OSHA says the new approach will result in more thorough inspections that will allow the agency to identify hazards before they cause or contribute to an injury or illness, particularly at dangerous work sites.

The revised inspection approach will target chemical exposures, ergonomic issues involving musculoskeletal disorders, workplace violence problems, oil refineries, process safety management operations, and other high-risk sites requiring a more detailed review.

Since the new inspection and enforcement changes are significant, now is the time to figure out exactly how the new approach will work—especially if you’re in an industry where the threat of inspection under OSHA’s new approach is high.

Join us on June 16 when seasoned safety lawyer Adele Abrams, Esq., CMSP, president of the Law Offices of Adele L. Abrams P.C., will explain the practical impact of OSHA’s new enforcement and inspection approach—and what to do to prepare in the event your worksite is inspected.

Bonus: You’ll receive BLR’s all-new white paper, What to Expect from an OSHA Inspection, which is chock full of best practices concerning inspection scheduling and unprogrammed inspections!

You will learn how to:

  • Identify the activities OSHA is likely to focus on as a result of its new strategy, and evaluate the inspection-threat level for safety issues, such as:
  • Assess the inspection-threat level for oil refineries, process safety management operations, and other high risk worksites
  • Determine how the new approach will directly affect your operations
  • Prepare for an inspection under OSHA’s new approach
  • Determine when OSHA’s new inspection approach will likely go into effect
  • Explain to senior management how OSHA’s new inspection approach will work and what your worksite(s) should do to prepare
  • Assess the key components for measuring OSHA inspection and enforcement activity, such as “enforcement units” and the new “enforcement weighting system”
  • Chemical exposures,
  • Ergonomic issues involving musculoskeletal disorders
  • Workplace violence
