Occupational Safety and Health

All employers, no matter what their size, are subject to occupational safety and health regulations.  State and federal OSHA standards contain multiple workplace requirements regarding matters such as mechanical safeguards, procedures and programs for protecting employees, employee exposure limits for airborne contaminants and noise, employee training, recordkeeping, and creation of written programs.

We advise our clients regarding methods to minimize health and safety risks to employees, including the provision of proper training. We provide audit assistance to identify OSHA programs and rules applicable to each client’s place of business and design written training programs in response to audit findings.   If problems do arise, we have experience in successfully resolving alleged OSHA violations.
