We advise employers in a broad range of industries on workplace safety issues and provide representation in Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) claims brought by federal and state government agencies. Our extensive experience with federal and state worker safety and health-related requirements has positioned us to serve as national counsel for companies of all sizes, including many Fortune 500 companies, across the country.
Companies that proactively manage employee safety programs are more likely to avoid costly lawsuits. We provide preventive counseling and help clients develop efficient management systems and comprehensive training programs to do just that. Our OSHA lawyers also direct compliance audits and internal safety investigations.
Because accidents do not always occur during normal business hours, we are available 24/7 to respond to inspections, accidents, fatalities, injuries and evacuations. Clients count on us to handle catastrophes calmly and professionally and provide guidance on appropriately responding to OSHA, unions and the media.
Our objective is to render excellent service in a cost-effective manner. We achieve efficient, effective settlements, assist with economical abatement measures and vigorously contest citations to protect our clients’ operations and reputations. We have settled numerous claims – often getting them withdrawn, dismissed or reclassified, or penalties eliminated or reduced with no admission of liability. We also have litigated citations in hearings and on appeal before the Occupational Safety & Health Review Commission (OSHRC). Our track record and credibility have earned the respect of many OSHA area directors, Department of Labor solicitors and the OSHRC.
