The Occupational Safety and Health Administration works to promote safe environments in a variety of industries, including chemical, manufacturing, and construction. While a great deal of the work they do is educational in nature, OSHA is mostly known for their enforcement efforts. Having an OSHA inspector show up at your door can be daunting. The nuances of what they are looking for aren’t always apparent. Yet, the penalties for non-compliance are severe and can damage your company’s reputation and financial standing. This is why it’s important to consult a Michigan OSHA attorney from Cotney Construction Law when dealing with matters involving OSHA.
