Many Americans voted for Donald Trump in the hopes he would be a disruptive force in Washington. Since his election, the private sector is asking what changes has President Trump made within the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and how will those changes affect employers and the workplace?

In the second installment of our safety and health compliance strategies series, Husch Blackwell attorneys will review the substantive actions taken by the executive, legislative and judicial branches with respect to OSHA and its enforcement powers. We will also look ahead to what might happen in the next three years once an Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health takes office.


  • Executive branch appointments and their effects on OSHA priorities  
  • Congressional Review Act – what happened, and can another shoe drop? 
  • Implementation delays for Obama-era rules and regulations
  • End of the blacklisting rule for government contractors
  • Budgetary cuts and reallocations to OSHA enforcement efforts
