The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA)” is the Federal agency charged with promulgating and enforcing safety and health rules in the workplace. Its mission is to ensure safe and healthful places of employment. Unlike some agencies, OSHA has the ability to enforce the rules that it enacts and issue citations and penalties. It does not shy away from using the “power of the press” to “blame and shame” employers into compliance with safety and health standards. OSHA also investigates allegations of retaliation by employers against employees under several statutes and for the last couple of years has increased focus and resources on ensuring that employees can voice safety and health concerns and complaints without fear of retaliation.
This presentation will provide legal counsel with information on basic OSHA compliance, how to handle an inspection, citation and penalty, the contestation and appeal process, whistleblower complaints, and tips and strategies the civil litigator can employ in underlying civil litigation where the OSHA standards are at issue.
