Winter 2017 Newsletter Greater Chicago
Posted: Jan 17, 2017
Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying the winter weather. I recently put new tires on my car, so I’m appreciating the extra traction whenever snow is falling.
As we head towards new OSHA and EPA administrations under President Trump, I’m starting to wonder how things will change. In his campaign, Donald Trump said he would roll back two regulations for every new one that gets introduced, but will he apply this to safety and environmental regulations too? If so, what regulations might we see getting introduced and which ones would be rolled back? One thing I do anticipate is a greater emphasis on utilizing programs like VPP and OSHA Consultation. We saw these pushed during the President Bush era, so it would be no surprise to see something similar.
