OSHA’s New Walkaround Rule: What You Can – and Can’t – Do, and How to Prepare


Register For This Event


5/23/24 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm CDT

Event Description

OSHA’s new worker representative rule is set to go into effect May 31. Employees can request a nonemployee representative to join portions of an OHSA inspection. This can be a union representative, even at a nonunion workplace. We’ll review what OSHA said and provide an unbiased review of what this rule means, and where it leaves uncertainty.

Among other topics, this presentation will cover:

  • What employers can do, such as getting nondisclosure agreements
  • What employers cannot do, such as challenge OSHA’s determinations
  • What employers should be doing to protect themselves, including training managers to avoid unfair labor practice charges

A Q&A session will be held during the last part of the webinar, so bring your questions!
