Defending OSHA Citations: From Inspection Through Hearing
Monday, May 16
3:00 - 4:15 p.m.
The process by which an OSHA citation is resolved has multiple layers to navigate. This session will take you through the administrative process beginning with what occurs during the OSHA investigation and continuing through the administrative hearing with an administrative law judge. Additional items discussed include identifying objectives in responding to an OSHA citation, preparing for an informal conference, the unforeseeable employee misconduct defense, and avoiding controlling employer liability under OSHA’s multi-employer worksite doctrine.
