Holland & Hart announces a new tool for staying up to date on workplace safety and health law - Workplace Safety Report, a cutting-edge, online resource with attorney-curated links and insight. The Report makes it easy for employers to stay up to date on these important issues, automatically pushing updates to anyone who follows via Twitter (@worksafereport), RSS, or workplacesafetyreport.com.
The Report is the only resource of its kind, according to Matt Linton, who, along with Cole Wist and Trey Overdyke, developed and contribute to the website. “This is not your typical, sleepy law firm blog,” said Linton. “Our goal is to provide key information in 30 seconds or less enabling our readers to flag topics for further research later.”
The Report includes information specifically related to industries at high-risk for work-related injuries such as construction, mining, oil & gas, refineries, manufacturing, health care, and more. In addition, the Report provides intelligence related to the various federal and state organizations and agencies that regulate safety and health in the workplace. These include the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Chemical Safety Board, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), and the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA).
Linton, Wist, and Overdyke are attorneys in Holland & Hart’s Workplace Safety/Emergency Response practice. With roots in its internationally recognized mining practice and market-leading litigation and labor and employment practices, Holland & Hart represents employers on a wide range of regulatory enforcement and litigation matters related to workplace safety and health.
