Rick Dawson

Manufacturing Businesses are now permitted to resume operations. However, there are still a lot of questions and concerns around employee safety. Howie Eberts, OSHA’s Cleveland Area Director, will address your questions, including:

  • What are the OSHA regulations and your responsibilities?
  • What changes do the new COVID-19 guidance require?
  • What are the OSHA requirements for recordkeeping and maintenance?
  • How should you incorporate COVID-19 in your written safety plan

Howie will present OSHA's enforcement plans and initiatives for the remainder of the year. Additionally, he will share 2019 inspection statistics and results.
