Why Contesting an OSHA Citation Classification is More Important Than the Fine

Why Contesting an OSHA Citation Classification is More Important Than the Fine
Hendershot, Cannon & Hisey, P.C.

There is no secret that OHSA violations put a lot on the line for employers. From substantial fines and collateral expenses to serious repercussions that threaten the reputation and future of a business, OSHA citations can be devastating, especially when they are not handled immediately or with the experienced support of proven lawyers.

At Hendershot, Cannon & Hisey, P.C., our OSHA defense attorneys have a proven record of success helping clients defend against OSHA citations. While defense strategies are highly dependent on the individual facts and circumstances involved, and tailored to our clients’ unique needs, we often emphasize a focus on contesting the classification of a citation rather than the resulting fines and penalties alone. This approach can prove critical in not only having a citation dismissed when possible, but also obtaining reductions in classifications that can lessen the impact on employers.
