OSHA's New Corporate-Wide Abatement Decision: Defend Against Companywide Safety And Health Violations Across Multiple Worksites
|Date / Time:
If your company operates more than one facility, your risk of being subjected to enterprise-wide Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) enforcement fines and penalties is growing. That’s because a recent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission (OSHRC) decision indicates that OSHA may have the authority to order abatement measures beyond specific violations identified in a citation(s) (not just at the facility where the inspection occurred). Therefore, the liability you face could be huge.
Consider that during a recent OSHA inspection of a transportation service provider with operations across North America, one of its facilities was cited for failure to comply with the OSHA powered industrial truck standards. OSHA proposed a whopping fine of $330,000 for 14 violations and, in addition to issuing violations for that specific facility, OSHA also required enterprise-wide abatement for the violations in question.
Join us for a can’t-miss webinar and learn the impact this latest OSHA enforcement decision has on your organization. Attorney Howard Mavity will advise you on how to share the new policy to senior management, and how you can prepare and protect your organization in the face of additional exposure from the policy.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
