OSHA and Workplace Accident Investigations: What Every HR Professional Needs to Know

June 18

Learn how to effectively and properly conduct a workplace investigation while keeping the company protected.

A workplace is changed in an instant when an accident occurs, especially accidents involving fatalities or catastrophic injuries. A typical day quickly transforms into one that can devastate other employees, cause chaos in your operations, and throw the company immediately into a legal morass. Preparedness is critical in addressing workplace accidents efficiently and effectively. Accidents and all other circumstances that prompt OSHA investigations must be planned for ahead of time. This planning ensures that the company and its key actors likely to be involved in an accident response will know what to do immediately in dealing with the unexpected. OSHA investigations following accidents can give rise to very serious legal consequences. Civil penalties can be extremely costly. Accidents can give rise to civil liability, citations, claims, or charges by OSHA, the injured employee(s) and/or victim(s), other employees, or third parties. Even criminal prosecutions are a possibility in extreme circumstances.

No OSHA investigation is routine, and it is impossible to write a script for how every investigation will unfold. However, there are key considerations and common themes that this topic will cover to ensure that you and your company are as prepared as possible for an OSHA investigation. This presentation provides a review of the information and procedures that can help a company through an OSHA investigation. Many of these concepts are transferable to responses to other types of incidents or any inquiry into how well the company has met the requirements of law. This topic is a starting point for those who are new to managing OSHA compliance, and a refresher for those who have experience with OSHA enforcement activities.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to describe best practices for dealing with co-workers, families of injured employees/victims, media and law enforcement following a workplace accident.
  • You will be able to analyze potential areas for litigation, charges or claims following a workplace accident.
  • You will be able to identify ways to minimize your potential OSHA liability and disruption to the workplace.
  • You will be able to recognize when an OSHA investigation is not going well and what to do about it.
