Protecting Your Business from Safety Violations and OSHA Penalties
The Federal Occupational Safety and Health Act is extremely broad and far-reaching – and the Act requires all employers covered by its provisions to keep their places of employment safe, and free from recognized hazards that are likely to cause death or serious harm to employees. Employers are also required to comply with all applicable occupational safety and health standards.
The presentation provides an overview of the general provisions of the Act applicable to most employers. Moreover, practical suggestions for responding and reacting to an OSHA investigation will be discussed, and recent developments will also be provided in order to further help employers avoid or minimize OSHA citations and penalties.
