Price: $365 Book
This authoritative resource on the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) and accompanying regulations examines employer obligations to protect employees from occupational hazards, and provides clear analysis of how the law works—and how it affects clients. It examines every aspect of workplace safety and health law, including recordkeeping and reporting, the general duty clause, penalties, union participation and appeals.
The new Third Edition of Occupational Safety and Health Law references key decisions and developments in occupational safety and health law since 2008, emphasizing the principles of law as set out by the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission, Mine Safety and Health Review Commission and the courts.
The Third Edition updates the treatise’s comprehensive coverage of the OSH Act, its implementing regulations and the cases interpreting them, as federal courts and the Review Commission continue to refine their analysis of employers’ duties under the Act and add nuance to the law. Topics such as penalties and other enforcement prerogatives are discussed, along with agency pronouncements and interpretations issued through mid 2013.
The Third Edition analyzes the Mine Safety and Health Act (MSHA), workers’ compensation laws, whistleblower protection statutes and related state laws. The treatise also examines:
The Third Edition offers updates on case law and court decisions, including:
The treatise discusses OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard, which was amended in 2012 to align with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals; describes the changes and ongoing litigation related to the new standard; and explains MSHA’s implementation of the MINER Act following changes to mine safety legislation.
The Third Edition includes updated text of the OSH Act, a summary of state plans and state plan information, a table of cases and a detailed index.
"Whenever I have a question of substance or procedure under the OSH Act or OSHA’s standards, regulations or rules, Occupational Safety and Health Law is my first stop. If it is not also my last, the last is usually a resource to which the treatise has pointed me. I could not do without it. And the Third Edition takes the earlier superb editions to even greater heights. Every OSHA practitioner, however infrequent, should have the volume within easy reach."
