The election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the US has had an impact at all layers of government, including OSHA. Even though there is a wave of deregulation occurring, the pressure on the printing industry continues unabated. OSHA has not changed the designation of the printing industry as a high hazard for amputations. This means printing operations are being randomly inspected. On average, OSHA inspects at least one to two printing operations per week and they are finding violations that cost real money.
This webinar will review OSHA enforcement activity, rulemaking, and other developments to watch as the year unfolds. We will discuss the top OSHA issues employers should monitor and understand along with what steps you will need to take to become compliant.
Presented by Gary Jones, Printing Industries of America and Marcia Y. Kinter, Specialty Graphic Imaging Association
Over the past few months, we have all heard detailed news accounts of high profile and shocking incidents of workplace harassment. Heightened media coverage and the#MeToo movement continue to shine a spotlight on this serious problem. Workplace harassment claims often blind-side employers. They are high-risk, expensive, and perhaps the most difficult to defend of all employment related lawsuits. Particularly frustrating for an employer is that, despite repeated attempts at educating their workforces about policies and legal requirements, something is getting lost in the translation. Even workers that have undergone harassment training many times cannot seem to apply the rules to their every day work lives. The result is unacceptable workplace conduct, lawsuits, and significant liability exposure.
On February 20, 2018 at Noon (Eastern), PIA will be conducting a webinar on this important topic. This webinar, entitled “Workplace Harassment: The Climate Has Changed! What Employers Must Do Now!” will address this “lost in translation” frustration for employers. The webinar is being conducted by theexperienced employment attorneys ofFerrara Fiorenza PC through their consulting practice, Delacroix Consulting Group. The webinar will present auniqueand innovative perspective on this topic, along with practical and meaningful harassment law compliance strategies.
Webinar topics include:

Since the printing industry has been deemed a high hazard industry by OSHA for amputations and combustible dust, the number of inspections, citations, and penalties has skyrocketed. On average, OSHA is inspecting at least one to two printing operations per week and they are finding many violations. There is a particular focus on compliance with the newly revised Hazard Communication Standard, machine guarding, lockout/tagout, and combustible dust. In addition, OSHA has made a significant change to its injury reporting requirements that now will force many companies to self-report when serious accidents occur.
