Topic Overview:

Occupational health plays a pivotal role in the ongoing safety of the work environment. As members of the management team, it is essential for Occupational Health Department staff to know and understand the potential changes in the regulatory environment caused by the passage of newly introduced legislation. This presentation will review the pertinent and germane bills introduced in the second session of the 113th Congress and give insights into the reasons behind the issues.


New initiatives presented by the various federal agencies will also be reviewed. Since 2008, OSHA has become an enforcement agency, and in the fall 2013 regulatory agenda, OSHA included initiatives for a new infectious disease standard and regulations which may result in the promulgation of required injury/illness prevention plans. This section of the legislative review will discuss the proposed regulations introduced by the Department of Labor and Department of Health and Human Services, and give details of the potential outcomes.



  1. Recognize which new legislation introduced into the 113th Congress may impact occupational health.
  2. Describe the issues behind the newly introduced legislation and the potential for passage.
  3. Identify strategies to address departmental changes brought on by newly introduced legislation.
  4. Review OSHA’s upcoming regulatory agenda for 2014 and initiatives which may impact the Occupational Health Department.
