Topic Overview:
The Occupational Health Department plays a pivotal role in the ongoing safety of the work environment. As members of the management team, it is essential for occupational health professionals to know and understand the potential changes in the regulatory environment caused by the passage of newly-introduced legislation. This general session will review the pertinent and germane bills introduced in the 116th Congress and give highlights into the reasons behind the issues. The Department of Labor’s most recent regulatory agenda, initiatives being pursued by the Department of Health and Human Services, and recent Supreme Court (and Circuit Court) decisions will be reviewed and dissected to determine their potential impact on occupational health responsibilities. Participants will learn strategies to address changes brought on by new legislation.
  • Learn which new legislation forwarded by President Trump and introduced into the 116th Congress may impact occupational health.
  • Describe the issues behind newly-introduced legislation and the potential for passage due to the new composition of the House of Representatives.
  • Initiate strategies to address workplace changes brought on by newly-introduced legislation and agency policies.
