Presented by Nick Scala
COVID-19 is, has been, and will continue to be part of every workplace in the nation for the foreseeable future. To this point during the pandemic, MSHA has largely taken a back seat in providing guidance to the nation’s mine operators regarding COVID or attempting to enforce new or existing regulations with respect to COVID-19 in mine. The onus was passed onto mine operators to establish and implement best practices for the workforce. Now, as we enter the Biden Administration, mine operators will still shoulder the responsibility for ensuring workplace safety considerations are put into effect for COVID-19, but also, it is likely that MSHA may take a more active roll. This webinar will review lessons learned and best practices for mine operators regarding COVID-19 in the workplace, while also looking to any new or existing regulatory compliance obligation facing mine operators.
Participants in this webinar will learn the following:
• An account of MSHA’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis and predictions about where MSHA will go next in regulating COVID-19 in the workplace
• Review of any existing or new regulation, including MSHA/OSHA Emergency Temporary Standards
• A forecast of COVID-related enforcement under President Biden’s Department of Labor
• COVID-19 best practices for employers in the workplace
