The Biden administration continues to establish itself, most recently by nominating Doug Parker, chief of the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal/OSHA), as assistant secretary for Occupational Safety and Health in the Department of Labor.

In the latest episode of Legal Insights, RC, Walls & Ceilings and Building Enclosure Publisher Jill Bloom catches up with Cotney Attorneys & Consultants CEO Trent Cotney on what contractors can expect from this nomination. Cotney warns that Cal/OSHA’s reputation for strict rulemaking may impact contractors, such as a big push on COVID-19 practices.

“He has sort of an activist regime where he believes in engaging in significant rulemaking, inspections, citations,” said Cotney.

Cotney also catches contractors up on bills that will affect roofing contractors, such as S.B. 76, and consolidation efforts happening in the industry. Watch the video or listen to the podcast for the full details.
