“@OSHA_Guy [Free Webinar] OSHA Status of Pres. Trump’s Agenda for the “Deconstruction of the Administrative State” – August 15th, 1:00pm ET”

Free Webinar

Date: Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Time: 1:00pm to 2:30pm ET

Your Hosts: Eric J. Conn, Kate M. McMahon, Amanda Strainis-Walker, and Micah Smith

President Trump was carried to the White House on promises (or threats) of rolling back government regulations.  At the CPAC conference this year, Pres. Trump’s Sr. Policy Advisor, Steve Bannon, framed much of Trump’s agenda with the phrase, “deconstruction of the administrative state,” meaning the system of regulations and taxes that the president says have stymied economic growth.  OSHA regulations are apparently at the heart of this deconstruction.  Now, only half a year into the Trump Administration, we have seen significant changes to the OSHA regulatory landscape.  This webinar will take a deep dive into the actions taken by the Trump Administration in conjunction with the Republican Congress to roll-back OSHA regulations or otherwise lessen the punitive influence of OSHA on our nation’s employers.  From the repeal of several Obama-era midnight rules, to a budget proposal that could gut OSHA’s enforcement efforts, to a series of Executive Orders that shift to a business friendly regulatory agenda.

Participants in this webinar will learn about:

  • Pres. Trump’s Executive Orders designed to slash regulations
  • Obama-era Safety Regulations Repealed by the Congressional Review Act
  • The Future of OSHA’s Electronic Recordkeeping Rule
  • Other Rules Affected by the Trump Transition
  • OSHA Budget Issues
