A Look Ahead at 2021 - More of the Same for EHS or a Whole New Ballgame?
This past year has been anything but business as usual. The way we work has changed. The focus of EHS has changed. And we still don’t know what impact the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election will have on regulatory action and compliance. After four years without an assistant secretary of labor for OSHA, will one be appointed? After four years without one, do we really need one?
Join attorneys Michael Taylor and Adam Roseman of the law firm of Greenberg Traurig as they take a look back at 2020 and the bellwether events that potentially have a long-term impact on EHS in 2021 and beyond. They will offer their advice about what EHS professionals can expect in terms of regulatory and enforcement actions and trends.
