The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates federal standards to ensure safe and healthy working conditions for employees in all types of industries. Complying with these standards and regulations is a legal requirement. Failure to abide leads to citations and penalties.
Complying with OSHA law can be challenging especially if you do not understand it. With today’s regulatory environment, a Florida OSHA defense attorney is critical to an employer’s ability to understand their obligations and for defense against potential claims.
