    In 2019, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration had the lowest number of workplace inspectors in its history. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic brought new challenges related to workplace safety, while also underscoring the relationship between workers' health and public health. This panel focuses on the range of worker-led and governmental responses to the pandemic, especially as they relate to workplace safety. Panelists will discuss legal and policy topics such as workers’ collective action; work law enforcement by agencies and in courts; and the (in-)adequacy of congressional and administrative responses to COVID-19’s devastating effects on workers and jobs.
