OSHA has increased enforcement to levels never seen before, from huge increases in the numbers of inspections and citations characterized as "willful" or "repeat" to more criminal referrals.

OSHA today is also engaging in more aggressive strategies during inspections, creating a minefield for employers across all industries.

The consequences of being caught unprepared for an OSHA inspection are more dire now than ever.

Event Description:

Eric J. Conn and Amanda Strainis-Walker, leaders of the national OSHA Practice Group at Epstein Becker Green, will provide an update on the current landscape of OSHA enforcement, review employers' and employees' rights during an OSHA inspection, provide detailed recommendations for actions employers can and should take now and during inspections, and discuss strategies to help ensure the best possible outcome from an unexpected visit by OSHA.

This interactive program is designed for those seeking to reduce costs, maintain operational efficiencies, and control union influence in workplace issues.

Topics to be covered include:

• OSHA's current philosophy of enhanced enforcement

• New enforcement programs, including enterprise-wide enforcement, the Severe Violator Enforcement Program, and a campaign of public shaming

• National, regional, and local emphasis inspection programs

• Steps employers should take before OSHA begins an inspection
