Whether you run a manufacturing facility, a chemical plant, or a construction company, there are a number of challenges that you will face each day. One of the biggest challenges is keeping your operations safe and compliant. While you may have plans in place to do so, inspections from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration are often unannounced.

If you are faced with an OSHA citation, it’s imperative that you contact a Michigan OSHA Defense attorney from Cotney Construction Law immediately. Our knowledge of OSHA policy and experience dealing with the organization will be instrumental in this matter.
