An experienced OSHA attorney will be aware of the OSHA rules and requirements that apply to your business, how to be prepared for planned or unplanned OSHA inspections, and will be ready to defend your case if a violation should occur. In the event of an unplanned inspection by an OSHA representative and without a warrant to enter the premises, the employer is granted the right to contact their OSHA attorney and request that they be present for the inspection. The inspector may choose to leave and return to the site with a warrant or may choose to wait for your OSHA attorney to arrive.
