The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a federal agency charged with the responsibility of protecting the health and safety of workers. OSHA has the authority to investigate claims made by various parties. It also has authority to conduct inspections of various natures.

If your company is the subject of an OSHA investigation or inspection, it is a good idea to contact a business attorney who is experienced in these matters. The time during OSHA’s inspection is critical for employers who want to minimize the number and severity of the citations they receive. During the inspection, we work with employers to help ensure that they are clearly communicating with OSHA and avoiding misunderstandings that could lead to additional citations. With our counsel, there is no reason to fear OSHA.

Common Reasons for OSHA Investigations

The most common causes for OSHA inspections and investigations are:

  • Imminent Danger Situations;
  • Severe Injury or Illness;
  • Worker Complaints;
  • Referrals;
  • Targeted Inspections;
  • Follow-up Inspections.

In the event that you have already been cited, we have the expertise to represent you in a negotiation of the fines levied against your organization.
