OSHA Issues During Acquisitions and Divestitures
Presented by Aaron Gelb, Micah Smith, and Dan Deacon

OSHA compliance issues have been long ignored in the due diligence process for mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. With OSHA’s new focus on follow-up inspections and Repeat citations, and expanding the concept of successor OSHA liability, it is a topic that should no longer be left out of the due diligence process. This webinar will explain the current landscape of successor liability under the OSH Act, explain what safety and health obligations a new employer may assume as a result of past conduct by a prior employer, and provide tips and strategies for managing OSHA compliance related due diligence.

Participants in this webinar will learn about:

• Successor and Repeat Liability Based on Prior Employers’ Violations
• Successors’ Duty to Address OSHA Penalties and Abatement of Predecessors
• Requirements to Transfer and Retain a Predecessor’s Safety Records
• Safety-related Due Diligence & Other Strategies
