    About this event

    This meeting will focus on the foundation of a safe workplace, or what we call safety and health management. This includes obtaining necessary commitment from senior leadership and an overall safety and health goal, ways to involve employees at every level of safety policymaking and hazard assessments, developing a process to identify and correct hazards, and observations and review of programs to determine effectiveness. Additionally we will talk about the regulatory aspects of the COVID response and how employers can learn from this to develop some contingency plans for any similar situations in the future. Finally, insight will be provided on what the future direction looks like of Oregon OSHA’s rules concerning infectious disease exposure in the workplace.
