NGFA and Grain Journal on May 20 will present a second webinar focused on the implications of COVID-19 for the grain, feed, processing and export industry. Featuring Eric J. Conn, chair of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) practice group at Conn Maciel Carey LLP, the webinar will examine the workplace safety implications of OSHA’s recently issued “Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19,” which defines risk categories and provides recommendations on how to protect employees. Conn is a widely recognized and respected expert on OSHA and safety and health matters.
Discussion topics will include:
- OSHA, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other guidance for managing infection control in the workplace generally;
- Regulatory issues and best practices associated with voluntary and mandatory use of respirators or other face coverings;
- Illness recording/reporting issues; and
- How to respond to employee or OSHA complaints.
OSHA’s definition of “workplace” covers everything from office buildings to grain elevators, animal food manufacturing and processing facilities; if you are operating in either a grain handling facility or an office, this webinar is a valuable preparedness tool!
