Updates from OSHA Head Doug Parker at ASSP Safety 2022

Editor Sydny Shepard discusses the highlights from DOL Assistant Secretary of Occupational Safety and Health Doug Parker's session at Safety 2022.

I don’t know about you, but last week I was in Chicago attending the American Society of Safety Professional’s Safety 2022 Professional Development Conference and Exposition. If you did have the opportunity to be there, I do hope that you had a wonderful time filled with education, networking and curious conversations.

For those who were unable to attend the conference, I wanted to spend some time in this podcast episode giving you the highlights of what may have been the most important session of the conference: an update from the Department of Labor’s Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, Doug Parker.
