Contractor Guidance on Avoiding OSHA and Other Legal Problems

Construction employment is at a record low and yet construction employers make up over 60% of the employers cited by OSHA and account for an even higher percentage of the unlucky employers placed on the OSHA Severe Violators Enforcement Program List. Even those contractors with national recognized safety management programs find themselves exposed to costly "repeat" citations and unusual new enforcement approaches and interpretations. This OnDemand Webinar will focus on three areas: (1) recognizing and responding to OSHA's increasingly complex citation theories; (2) managing OSHA and other government visits under the DOL "Plan/Prevent/Protect" approach; and (3) discuss practical worksite strategies to improve the safety management process in a fashion that increases productivity and profits.
