OSHA’s Emergency COVID-19 Standard(s)?!
Program ID 2976354
Thursday, Apr 1st 2021
02:00 pm - 03:30 pm (EST)
1.5 Credits
Course Description:
By way of Executive Order dated January 21, 2021, President Biden directed OSHA to consider whether any emergency federal standards on COVID-19 workplace health and safety are necessary, and if so, to issue them by March 15, 2021. It is hard to imagine that OSHA will answer with anything other than “yes.”

Indeed, on January 29, 2021, OSHA issued updated and more substantial guidance. The guidance provides more than a glimpse into what is likely to come next in terms of a standard or standards.

On the assumption that a new OSHA emergency standard (or standards) will be issued, creating new federal COVID-19 related workplace safety and health requirements, DMi is offering a 90-minute webinar to help employers address the new standard(s). The webinar will:

• Provide a practical framework for complying with the new standard(s);
• Highlight how the new standards work together with the Biden administration’s OSHA guidance issued on January 29, 2021;
• Discuss the intersection with state and local law. Virtually every state has issued robust COVID-related requirements and restrictions (for example, California, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Virginia and Washington);
• Share some of the more common mistakes/gaps in COVID-19 prevention and remediation; and
• Address OSHA’s anticipated enforcement strategy for the new guidance and standard(s).

Pending Credits: 1.5 CA CLE; 1.8 NJ CLE; 1.5 NY CLE; 1.5 PA CLE; 1.5 HRCI; 1.5 SHRM

(Other states available for CLE credits upon request)

The program is free for clients of Duane Morris and customers of the Duane Morris Institute. Registration will be capped.
