OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY & HEALTH (OSHA)

From “A” (Cal/OSHA’s ATD standard) to “Z” (Fed/OSHA’s subpart Z), we help our clients with their many complex safety and health compliance obligations and defend them when citations are issued or litigation arises.

Our approach

We know OSHA law inside and out, and we have helped define how that law is interpreted and applied.

With literally thousands of safety and health regulations to follow, compliance can be very difficult for employers. From the hazards of each specific job, to responding to natural disasters, workplace emergencies and pandemic response, we help you find effective solutions.

We provide management training on all occupational safety and health issues and help you develop robust, yet practical safety programs and stay on top of regulatory developments. We help you audit and identify what you need to do to be in compliance today—and tomorrow—and then help you with implementation.

We guide employers through the crucial hours during an agency inspection and through emergency response. If and when citations, litigation or criminal charges follow, we provide our clients with early case analysis, efficient case management and a tenacious defense.

Where compliance just is not feasible, we also assist in obtaining relief through variances and the rulemaking process.

Who we work with

  • All employers, with an emphasis on high-hazard industries subject to the strictest occupational safety and health regulations
