OSHA: It’s Not Just for Safety Officers Anymore

Posted in First Friday Webinar, Mark Fahleson, Tara Paulson

Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a heightened focus on health and safety in the workplace. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 was adopted to ensure workers have safe and healthy working conditions. While many organizations have delegated these safety and health responsibilities to a single position, often a “safety officer,” today’s reality is that everyone involved in human resources is charged with the duty of ensuring compliance. What are your OSHA obligations with respect to COVID-19? With more employees WFH, do those responsibilities diminish? What industries and practices is OSHA presently focused on? The 50th anniversary of OSH Act being signed into law is this coming December, so what better time to refresh yourself on the Act? This month’s webinar will focus on the workings of the OSH Act and how you can ensure your organization remains in compliance with its requirements both during the ordinary course of business and in the midst of the pandemic. Join us at 11:00 a.m. CT on Friday, July 10, 2020 for this OSHA refresher course and update.
