The Most Pressing Safety and Health Issues Facing Industry Employers
In this presentation Melanie Paul, who leads the Jackson Lewis Workplace Safety and Health Practices Group will be joined by Adam Gross, a key member of the Firm’s Hospitality Industry Group to discuss the most pressing safety and health issues facing industry employers. Those issues include such OSHA enforcement priorities as heat illness, chemical safety and hazard communication, electrical hazards, and lockout tagout, to name a few. The presentation will focus on what industry employers need to be compliant with safety and health regulations and how to avoid inquiries and inspections from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupation and Safety Health Administration (OSHA). Employee complaints to OSHA are on the rise and our panelists will discuss how to address complaints and respond to employee initiated OSHA enforcement activity.
