17. Regulation of workplace violence prevention programs under OSHA's general duty clause
from The National Law Review
From March 19:
Recently, Gillian had the distinct pleasure of attending the ABA Occupational Safety and Health Law Meeting in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The meeting included more than a dozen presentations and panels on workplace safety put on by management and union lawyers, OSHRC Commissioners, the Solicitor of Labor’s office, safety professionals, administrative law judges and others. The discussions provided a wealth of important information on compliance with government safety regulations, including valuable insight into where the DOL is focusing its initiatives in the coming year. Workplace violence prevention is near the top of that list, with a particular focus on employers in the health care industry, and remarks by the Commissioners discussing a new opinion on the subject helped to illuminate what DOL enforcement efforts in that arena may look like.
