Chuck Palmer will present at the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Wisconsin Annual Conference on May 20, 2016.
Both OSHA and the "little OSHAs" in those states that have their own plans are aggressively inspecting worksites around the country and citing employers whose employees work at those sites for hazards OSHA identifies. Federal OSHA also is regulating industries primarily by “re-interpretating” its standards, regulations and enforcement schemes, not by rulemaking. This trend of the past seven-plus years is likely, if anything, to ramp up as the next presidential election cycle approaches. This OSHA presentation will cover "what's up now" and what we imagine we are likely to see in the next 18 to 24 months.
