Program Description

This essentials program provides a description of the fundamentals of OSHA, the OSH Act, and the authority of the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission. 

The speakers will cover the statutes involved in OSHA practice, OSHA enforcement of those statutes, the regulations that are promulgated under them, the role of the Commission and the courts in appeals from OSHA citations, and practice before those tribunals. Whether you are an employment lawyer who wants to know more about this important area or more of a generalist who represents employees or employers in industries such as manufacturing, construction, restaurant, retail, staffing, health care and other social services,  a primer in this growing area of the law impacting those businesses will be of great interest to you.

CLE Credit

States typically decide whether a program qualifies for MCLE credit in their jurisdiction 4-8 weeks after the program application is submitted. For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program.

The ABA does not seek direct accreditation of live webinars and teleconferences in FL, ID, KS, ME, NE, NH, NJ, OH, PA, RI, and WY. Some states allow attorneys to earn credit through reciprocity or self-submission. View accreditation information for your state. The ABA will seek credit for this program in the states indicated on this page.

The ABA will seek 1.5 hours of general CLE credit in 60-minute states and 1.8 hours of CLE credit in 50-minute states. Credit hours granted are subject to each state’s approval and credit rounding rules.
