Meeting Description:

Who is this New Leadership Team at OSHA?

Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 1 PM ET

Presented by Amanda R. Strainis-Walker and Kate McMahon

Pres. Obama's Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA and the rest of the Leadership Team at OSHA turned over the keys to the Trump Administration.  The Trump Administration has now installed or announced its own OSHA Leadership Team, and the backgrounds and regulatory philosophy between the outgoing and new decision makers and policymakers at OSHA could not be more different.

This webinar will review the new appointees who have taken or should soon take the reins at OSHA, and discuss how this new Leadership Team will affect the OSHA enforcement and rulemaking.  We will also discuss other personnel changes at OSHA and OSHRC that impact the regulatory landscape for employers.

Date: Tue, Mar 20, 2018
Time: 01:00 PM EDT
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Host(s): Kate M. McMahon and Amanda Strainis-Walker
