Workplace Safety & OSHA
Employers need to be proactive when it comes to workplace safety. SMM Law can help prevent unsafe workplace conditions and also defends employers during OSHA inspections and enforcement actions.
One of the most important responsibilities for employers is providing a safe workplace, but it’s not always easy to comply with all of the federal requirements given the increasing number of complex regulations and policies under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
SMM Law provides easy-to-understand legal guidance to help employers develop and maintain effective workplace safety programs that comply with all of OSHA’s requirements. We conduct audits and inspections to determine any areas of vulnerability and minimize an employer’s liability. Additionally, we help employers develop workplace violence policies and implement substance abuse testing and prevention programs.
If you receive an OSHA complaint or citation, don’t try to handle it yourself! SMM Law can review it, evaluate your position, and help you minimize any penalties or fines. We have years of hands-on experience dealing with OSHA and we’ve handled serious cases involving repeat and willful citations. SMM Law uses this knowledge and experience to vigorously defend every case.
