OSHA enforcement is on the rise which means the need for experienced and practical legal guidance is a necessity. While worker safety issues abound, understanding and meeting OSHA regulations has proven to be an arduous task without the assistance of a legal professional.
The Florida OSHA lawyers of Cotney Construction Law understand the impact that regulations can have on operations, finances, personnel, and sustainability. This is why we provide timely legal counsel to clients across Florida with all of their OSHA-related needs. We focus a great deal on the construction industry; however, we assist a range of industries in OSHA compliance and safety.
Avoid OSHA Citations
Companies receive OSHA violation citations due to noncompliance with OSHA standards and regulations. Companies that do not comply face steep fines and must make certain they alter their workplace habits to meet safety standards. To align, familiarity with OSHA standards and a prevention plan must be priority one.
Companies can prevent violations and citations by doing the following:
- Enforcing safety rules
- Conducting safety audits
- Keeping accurate records
- Responding to citations quickly
- Addressing employees’ concerns
- Using the right personal protective equipment
- Securing the workplace against common hazards
- Refraining from retaliating against employees who submit complaints
- Posting a violation in a visible location at or near the the site of the incident
