Tuesday, June 28, 2022

Complimentary registration is available here.
You’re invited to join us for a complimentary webinar designed for human resource professionals and business owners/operators with employees who work outside.
In the aftermath of an unprecedented heat wave last year and devastating wildfires the year prior—along with a continuing trend of hotter, drier summers in the Pacific Northwest—the Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OR-OSHA) has created stringent new rules that place numerous obligations on employers—especially those who have outdoor employees. OR-OSHA’s Wildfire Smoke and Heat Illness Prevention rules are dense and complicated, and it’s easy for employers to overlook important safety obligations and requirements. To ensure that employers take steps to keep their employees safe, stay in compliance, and avoid costly fines and potential litigation, Barran Liebman attorney Bruce Garrett will cover the key aspects of the rules including:
Mandatory Employee Training & Notifications
Emergency & Medical Planning
Employee Communication Systems
Outdoor Safety Logistics
