There are still plenty of OSHA regs to keep our eye on for the remainder of 2017. I think there was an assumption that Trump was gonna be annihilating OSHA but the fact remains, he hasn't, and there are new regs still pushing forward. This video gives some insight into what's out there and whats on the table for 2017-2018.
Last week, the House and the Senate overturned an OSHA record keeping law known as the "Volks Rule." If you're not familiar with this rule and how it effects your organization, watch the video to find out!
In this short video, I break down the effective dates for all 2017 OSHA rules. This includes the new record keeping laws, anti-retaliation laws, drug screening rules, whistleblower laws, emphasis on incentive programs, beryllium PEL limits, silica PEL limits, walking-working surfaces, electronic submission of OSHA 300 logs and certified vs. qualified crane operators in construction.
We continue to receive multiple questions from clients and colleagues regarding what "Trump's OSHA" will look like. I have several thoughts on this based on our "boots on the ground" experience with OSHA and the ways in which we've seen their laws change in THEIR favor over the last handful of years. This is a must watch as we find many pro-OSHA laws that are sure to keep them very passively-active over the next several years. Check it out!
