OSHA citations create tremendous exposure to penalties and serious repercussions, and may have the potential to threaten the reputation, success, and future of a business. For these reasons, businesses should be intent on protecting their rights and interests by addressing the OSHA citations process as immediately and effectively as possible, and doing so with the help of experienced attorneys.
At Hendershot, Cannon & Hisey, P.C., our OSHA defense lawyers have become known for our ability to successfully protect and defend employers from a range of industries when they have received OSHA citations for alleged safety violations. Because we know citations make for high stakes, and because timely and intelligent handling of the process is so critical to securing a positive resolution, we wanted to provide employers with information about the anatomy of a citation.
One our OSHA defense blog – which you can view here – we discuss some of the general steps in the OSHA citation process, including:
- The elements required to issue a citation
- The importance of timely action when responding to citations
- Options for defense and resolution (including informal settlement conferences and appeals to contest citations)
- Compliance moving forward
