With 2020 behind us, now is the time to take stock of the state of MSHA as the Biden Administration begins. We will review the past year’s enforcement trends and initiatives, as well as regulatory agenda, highlighting the evolution of MSHA and its priorities during the Trump Administration. We will also look to the future, examining how MSHA is most likely to change in the first year of the Biden Administration, and what new enforcement policies will replace those the industry has grown accustomed to the last 4 years.
Participants in this webinar learned the following:
- 2020 MSHA enforcement data, predictions for future areas of emphasis
- MSHA and other DOL organizational developments
- The future of MSHA enforcement
- Other MSHA implications of the 2020 Presidential Election
