While employers uniformly appreciate that commitment to the safety and health of their employees is a key to success, they equally appreciate the difficulty of dealing with the many regulations governing workplace safety. The Occupational Safety & Health Act presents challenges for all employers.
An employer’s preparedness often sets the tone for how the unannounced OSHA inspection will proceed and can be the first step toward a satisfactory result. We regularly advise employers regarding regulatory compliance. Further, our multiple office locations permit us to be on the spot when an OSHA inspector arrives or a serious accident occurs. We handle inspections ranging from those that take a day to those that have taken the better part of a year, and all stops in between.
We work extensively with the four OSHA area offices in Ohio and the Solicitor’s lawyers in contested matters. Often, the most important part of resolving a dispute with OSHA is establishing a course so that the claimed hazard will be abated economically and the employer may continue its business unimpeded. Where such resolutions are not possible, however, our litigators try matters to the judges of the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.
