Next month, we will once again have the opportunity to cast a ballot to elect the President of the United States. The election will result in either a second term for President Trump or a new Democratic Administration. As always, we expect the platforms and proposed polices of the candidates to be quite divergent, so we will offer some projections about how the government’s actions on workplace safety would differ under each candidate. In particular, we will discuss how the OSHA enforcement and rulemaking landscape is likely to change in a second Trump term and what to expect in those areas from a President from the Democratic Party. This webinar will discuss the public positions taken by both candidates about safety and health enforcement and rulemaking, and the likely impacts depending on which candidate takes control of the Executive Branch in 2021, as well as which party takes control of the House and Senate.
