Planning for Emergencies | 2021 Occupational Safety and Health Webinar Series

In the third program in B&D's 2021 Occupational Safety and Health webinar series, Heidi Knight (Principal, Boston) and Tracy Williams (Associate, Seattle) will review the OSHA requirements for emergency action plans and fire prevention plans, and will identify the other standards that trigger these requirements. It will provide an in-depth look at OSHA’s Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) standard, which requires employers to be prepared to respond to hazardous substance releases. It will outline emergency planning and response procedures for hazardous substances releases and other emergency-related OSHA standards, including the first aid standard and the rescue provisions of the permit-required confined spaces standard.

Informed by the experience and insights of B&D's full-service OSHA and state OSHA practice, our annual Occupational Safety and Health webinar series will provide practical knowledge to help corporate legal and EHS staff ensure that their employers comply with applicable occupational safety and health requirements and are prepared to defend allegations that compliance was inadequate. B&D's panel of speakers will examine important individual OSHA standards, rulemaking developments, similarities and differences among state and federal worker safety requirements, and will provide practical tips and best practices for employers.

There is no charge to attend this webinar, but advance registration is required. This series is intended for in-house counsel, EH&S professionals, and business leaders at companies, municipalities, and trade associations. To request an invitation, please contact Alexa Curto, [email protected].
