OSHA Essentials for Small Business

While small employers have some limited exemptions, don’t think that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) – the arm of the U.S. Department of Labor that enforces the Occupational Safety and Health Act, can’t inspect your workplace and issue citations. Every small business owner who values their employees’ safety needs and wants to reduce costs should be familiar with OSHA’s requirements for small businesses.

This month’s legal webinar will offer small businesses critical OSHA information and resources. Presented by Davis Jenkins, an attorney with the law firm of Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C., and moderated by Elizabeth Milito, of the NFIB Small Business Legal Center, the webinar will give an overview of OSHA, outline employer requirements, and discuss critical OSHA enforcement initiatives that impact small businesses.
