Safety Awards Lunch Keynote Presented by SAIF Corporation 12:15–2 pm
The Hard Part…Maintaining Legal Compliance and a Safety Culture All At the Same Time
Even if the Trump Administration doesn’t pass many new laws, plenty of new federal requirements will continue and even more state law changes are occurring in 2017. We’ll discuss some of the expected hot new issues with OSHA, wage-hour, EEO, and other issues for employers, as well as strategies to avoid problems. Changes in the industry will also affect these developments.
Keynote Speaker Howard Mavity is a partner in the firm’s Atlanta office. He founded and co-chairs the firm’s Workplace Safety and Catastrophe Management Practice Group.
He draws upon his past business experience in transportation, logistics, construction, and industrial supply to work with clients as a business partner, and focuses on eliminating employee problems by commonsense management.
Howard has provided counsel for over 225 occasions of union activity, guided unionized companies, and has managed approximately 550 OSHA fatality cases in construction and general industry, ranging from dust explosions to building collapses, in virtually every state.
He has coordinated complex inspections involving multi-employer sites, corporate-wide compliance, and issues involving criminal referral. Howard is active in rulemaking and dealings with federal and state Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other agencies.
He oversees audits of corporate labor, HR, and safety compliance. He also responds to virtually every type of day-to-day workplace inquiry, and has handled cases before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), National Labor Relations Board
(NLRB), and numerous other state and federal agencies.
We look forward to seeing you on Friday!
