Epstein Becker Green to Host 2014 OSHA Webinar Series: Part III - Preparing For and Managing an OSHA Inspection

Date Posted: August 28, 2014

Epstein Becker Green is pleased to announce the 2014 Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Webinar Series hosted by Eric J. Conn, Chair of Epstein Becker Green’s OSHA Practice Group.

This five-part webinar program will provide an in-depth analysis and offer tools to assist employers facing the daunting task of complying with OSHA's numerous federal and state occupational safety and health standards and regulations.

OSHA has heightened 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.

Mr. Conn will deliver a webinar briefing on how best to prepare for and manage an OSHA inspection.

The webinar will review:

• Steps that employers should take before OSHA begins an inspection

• Employers' and employees' workplace inspection rights

• Stages of OSHA inspections

• Tips and best practices to manage each stage of the inspection

• Post-inspection considerations and strategies
