This year promises to bring even more headlines than 2011 regarding workplace safety and the agency empowered to regulate it—OSHA. Election-year politics bring increased scrutiny for regulators, so OSHA will have to pick its battles carefully when pursuing changes through new or updated regulations. But frustration when it comes to passing new laws may only fuel further action in enforcement, an area it has aggressively pursued under President Obama's Administration. Companies dealing with OSHA face uncertainty for 2012, but the agency has given clear indicators on what businesses may be dealing with in the coming year.
Haynes and Boone OSHA lawyers discussed what is expected from the agency in 2012. Our presenters, as members of the Occupational Safety and Health Law Committee of the American Bar Association shared breaking news from the annual Committee meeting as heard from the critical players who comprise OSHA's various branches of compliance and enforcement.
