Webinar (2015-09): OSHA Increases Use of General Duty Clause: How to Avoid Enforcement and Costly Penalties Amid the Agency’s New Norm

OSHA’s General Duty Clause is the “gap filler” in enforcement actions that address recognized hazards where no specific OSHA standard exists. In 2014, more than 1,500 GDC violations were cited, with nearly $5 million in penalties. In this webinar, BLR Legal Editor Ana Ellington will discuss the broad application of the GDC, why OSHA is using the GDC more when issuing citations, how to prove employer recognition, tips on avoiding a GDC citation at your facility, and best practices for defending against a GDC citation.
