Lawyers Group

The members, representing a diverse list of multinational Fortune 500 companies, attend meetings twice a year, in November and May.The Lawyers Group focuses on broad-based issues such as occupational safety and health legal trends to more specific topics such as recent developments in legislation, litigation, regulation and enforcement. Actions by Congress, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Department of Homeland Security, the Chemical Safety Board, the Department of Justice and the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission that impact occupational safety and health are routinely reported and discussed.
