A number of recent, high-profile criminal and civil prosecutions of workplace safety violations shine a bright light on a new trend in US Department of Labor and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) enforcement. Join us for a one-hour webinar as we provide an update on these recent developments and strategies that employers should take to prepare for the increased risks.

Topics will include:

  • How OSHA and the US Department of Justice’s (DOJ’s) Memorandum of Understanding will yield greater coordination of criminal prosecution by the DOJ of certain types of workplace safety cases
  • What enhanced coordination between OSHA and state and local prosecutors means for employers
  • What employers need to know about the impending increase to OSHA’s civil penalties in August
