Employers have always endeavored to provide a safe workplace for their employees, and the obligation has expanded due to new requirements prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The challenges employers face will continue due to the number of compliance regulations, policies, and interpretations under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Mine Safety and Health Act (MSHA), and state and local laws.
Employers are often looking for advice on successful implementation of safety protocols and procedures, injuries and illness programs, or compliance audits. Lately, frequent, and sometimes conflicting, guidance offered by OSHA, the Department of Transportation, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other state and public agencies across the country continues to stymie employers with national operations.
