Mark Duvall and Jayni Lanham Quoted in Material Handling & Logistics on New OSHA Rule
Principals Mark Duvall (Washington, DC) and Jayni Lanham (Baltimore) were quoted in an article in Material Handling & Logistics titled "New OSHA Slip & Fall Rules Impact Employers in All Industries." The article discusses 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,” Mark and Jayni note.
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.”
