Keys to Avoiding OSHA Citations and Liabilities

April 22

Find out everything you need to know about OSHA inspections to protect your company.

Searching for “how to comply with OSHA” after the compliance officer arrives at your facility is not a winning strategy. Surviving an OSHA inspection requires planning and preparation long before OSHA knocks at your door. This topic will help you with answers to many of the questions you will likely be scrambling to find answers for when it is already too late to do anything, including: What sort of requirements apply to your workplace, and how does OSHA enforce them? Does OSHA have jurisdiction over your operation, or will you be dealing with a state agency? What are the most commonly cited violations? How do you go about identifying the hazards in your workplace, and what options do you have to correct them? Can you deny entry to the OSHA inspector if they show up unannounced? What happens if you do? What should you say, and not say, during the inspection? Do you need a lawyer present? Will OSHA hold it against you if you have counsel present? What if the OSHA inspector asks for a demonstration or to take video? What if OSHA takes samples? What are your options if OSHA issues citations to you? Should you request an informal settlement conference? What can and should you ask for during the informal conference? What are the most common mistakes that employers make when settling citations? Is there any benefit to filing a notice of contest?

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to identify how OSHA and its state agency counterparts enforce workplace safety standards and the general duty clause.
  • You will be able to recognize the steps you should take to identify hazards and the hierarchy of controls you are expected to implement to eliminate and/or minimize those hazards.
  • You will be able to discuss what you need to do to prepare for and what to do (and not do) during a workplace inspection.
  • You will be able to explain what to do in the event your company is cited for alleged workplace hazards, including your options at the informal conference and contest (litigation) stages.
