Seyfarth Synopsis: This morning our panel from Seyfarth’s Workplace Safety team led a briefing on OSHA regulation and enforcement under the Trump Administration.
One year into the Trump Administration, employers’ expectations for a more business-friendly Agency have not yet materialized, as the still-leaderless Agency proceeds ahead with widespread aggressive enforcement. The panel addressed recent developments and trends our Group has seen from federal OSHA, including the stalled nomination of Scott Mugno to head the Agency. The panel also discussed:
- Continued Aggressive Enforcement Trends Under the Trump Administration
- Ongoing OSHA Initiatives such as Electronic Reporting
- Workplace Violence
- The Rise of Whistleblowers
- Best Practices for Managing an OSHA Inspection
Finally, the panel discussed practical tips to guide employers in this new regulatory environment.
