Employers throughout the nation continually are impacted by workplace-safety regulations imposed by OSHA. California employers are subject to additional regulations as a result of Cal/OSHA requirements. Maintaining compliance with both state and federal occupational safety and health laws is complex and challenging. The process requires a thorough understanding of the legal issues across multiple industries, disciplines, and professions. Our firm has extensive experience developing strategies for employers to ensure compliance, including development of an effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP). We guide our clients through inspections and safety audits, review their safety and health policies, advise them of the latest OSHA legislative and regulatory developments, and help them avoid civil penalties and fines.
The firm has developed an expertise representing employers following fatal and serious workplace accidents. This includes dealing with OSHA, concurrent criminal investigations, media and public relations, investor relations, insurance and subrogation issues, and the employee-relations and family-relations issues that must be addressed in these tragic and trying circumstances.
We represent our employer clients before the California Occupational Safety and Health Appeals Board, contesting and appealing Cal/OSHA citations and proposed penalties. We defend employers in both federal and state courts against claims of corporate civil liability, as well as corporate and personal criminal liability, related to OSHA complaints.
