The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is charged with assuring “safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards” through a variety of statues and regulations.  We have represented various industrial clients, contractors and sub-contractors in cases during OSHA investigations into potential violations related to toxic exposure accidents on job sites and other violations.

Cases of Note

  • Represented an industrial corporation regarding a potential exposure to toxic chemicals and metals.
  • Represented a masonry contractor whose job site was investigated by OSHA for potential violations related to fatal accident where an employee of a sub-contractor tripped and fell from scaffolding near a cement mixer. The cement mixer was found to have been properly secured on the scaffolding and not the cause of the fatal fall.
  • Defended a contractor in an OSHA investigation where scaffolding collapsed at a shopping mall work site. OSHA found that the contractor took all the appropriate steps to secure the scaffolding and the work site area following scaffolding collapse. The collapse was found to have been caused by a manufacturing defect in the railing.
