Mark Duvall and Jayni Lanham Quoted in Material Handling & Logistics Article on New OSHA Rule
Beveridge & Diamond Principals and co-leaders of the Firm’s Occupational Health & Safety Practice, Mark Duvall and Jayni Lanham, were quoted by Material Handling & Logistics on a new OSHA rule designed to prevent slips and falls in the workplace.
The final rule will go into effect on January 17, 2017 and will encompass all employers in general industry.
“Because a key motivation for the rule was to keep pace with technological advancement and national consensus standards, employers who have adopted those standards may be largely compliant already,” Mr. Duvall and Ms. Lanham state.
In the context of the recent presidential election, they go on to comment that although the rule has “generated less controversy than many other rules adopted under the Obama Administration, OSHA’s new rule faces an uncertain trajectory.”
Beveridge & Diamond's Occupational Health & Safety Practice works alongside clients’ legal, EHS and technical teams, to help resolve critical enforcement, compliance, and regulatory issues relating to their facilities and operations. For more information, please contact the authors.
