New York, NY, April 19, 2015 –(PR.com)– The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, brings together the world’s leading authorities and industry participants through informative two -hour webcasts. It has scheduled a live webcast entitled: “OSHA Rules and Regulations – What You Need to Know Live Webcast.” This two-hour event is scheduled on Tuesday, April 21, 2015 from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm (ET).

Event Synopsis:

Under the US Occupational Health & Safety Act (1970) employers are required to provide a safe and healthful working environment. OSHA enforces established standards with which all employers must comply. Employers must also comply with the General Duty Clause of the Act which requires them to keep the workplaces free of recognized serious hazards.

Employers can face dauntingly complex tasks and confusing language in complying with OSHA’s numerous and extensive federal and state occupational safety and health standards and regulations. Many employers and their legal advisors often are un-aware of many of the legal requirements that must be met to ensure the safety of their workers – such as training.

With the growth of temporary employment status in the US, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is focusing upon employers skirting the laws regarding such issues as Injury and Illness prevention and reporting, safety training deficiencies, and placement of new employees in hazardous positions. In April OSHA announced the final rule revising and enhancing the standards for electric power generation, transmission, and distribution.

In this webinar, our panel of speakers will review the fundamentals of the Occupational Health & Safety Act (1970) and, the extent of the authority of the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.

Specifically, the panel speakers will address the statutes involved in OSHA legal practice, the enforcement of and compliance with the statutes, the regulations promulgated, and the role of the Commission and the courts in appeals relating to OSHA citations and practices. Other issues addressed will include NFPA changes, the SVE Program, and practices putting your organization at risk. Whether you are an employment lawyer or a lawyer representing industrial employees or employers this webinar will be of value.
