Smith Hulsey & Busey attorney Meg Heiden is sharing her knowledge about OSHA’s new COVID-19 employer requirements at two events this month. The federal agency’s latest Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) outlines employer responsibilities and employee requirements in regards to COVID-19, including issues such as vaccination, testing, exposure notification and more.
On December 9, Heiden will present a seminar in partnership with Hylant on the “Evolution of the ETS and How It May Affect Employers.” The in-person event will be held at 8:30 a.m. at Aloft Tapestry Park (4812 Deer Lake Drive W) in Jacksonville. Attendees must RSVP here.
The program is approved by the HR Certification Institute (HRCI) for 1.5 hours of continuing education and recertification credit. The program is also approved by SHRM for 1.5 hours of Professional Development Credits (PDCs). (Hylant is recognized by SHRM to offer PDCs for the SHRM-CPSM or SHRM-SCPSM.)
On December 15, Heiden will speak at a webinar hosted by the Florida Society for Healthcare Risk Management and Patient Safety (FSHRMPS). Her presentation will address the OSHA COVID-19 ETS, including a brief overview of the standard, developments since its June 2021 publication, OSHA enforcement activity and best practices.
The online event will take place at 3 p.m. and is free for both members and non-members. Attendees can learn more and register here.
Heiden’s practice focuses on the intersection of healthcare and employment law. With her broad range of healthcare experience, she helps clients avoid or respond to litigation arising from their transactional and healthcare regulatory obligations. Her practical knowledge of the healthcare industry?s nuances allows her to bridge the traditionally siloed litigation, transactional and regulatory practice areas to provide holistic representation that considers all of her clients? competing priorities.
