Presented by Kate McMahon, Amanda Walker, and Micah Smith
Next month, Americans will cast ballots to elect the next President of the United States – either a second term for President Trump or a new Democratic Administration under former Vice President Biden. As always, the platforms and proposed polices of the candidates are quite divergent, so we will project how the government’s actions on workplace safety will differ under the two candidates. In particular, we will discuss how the OSHA enforcement and rulemaking landscape is likely to change in a second Trump term and what to expect in those areas if Biden takes the reins. This webinar will discuss the public positions taken by both candidates about safety and health enforcement and rulemaking, and the likely impacts depending on which candidate takes control of the Executive Branch in 2021, as well as which party control of the House and Senate.
Participants in this webinar will learn what to expect from a Trump vs. Biden Administration in terms of:
- Regulation and enforcement of COVID-19 in the workplace
- OSHA rulemaking and enforcement priorities and strategies
- OSHA leadership
- Other worker safety regulatory and legal issues
