Post-OSHA Citation: The Contest Process, Settlement Goals and Strategy


Meeting Description:

Post-OSHA Citation – The Contest Process, Settlement Goals and Strategy 

Wednesday, September 7, 2016 at 1 PM ET

Presented by Eric J. Conn and Micah Smith

You just received a set of OSHA citations in the mail.  What now?  Should we accept the citations and pay the penalty?  Should we participate in an Informal Settlement Conference with the OSHA Area Office?  Should we contest the citations?  What does a good settlement look like and how can we achieve those goals?  This webinar will explain the post-citation process, and provide tips and strategies for resolving OSHA citations in a manner that mitigates the potential for Repeat violations, reduces the proposed penalty, prevents the citations from impacting a personal injury or wrongful death civil suit, and helps you avoid or extricate you from the Severe Violator Enforcement Program. 

Participants will learn:

  • Options and avenues for resolving OSHA citations
  • Tips for how to evaluate the potential future impact of citations
  • Settlement goals and strategies
  • Simplified proceedings, mandatory settlement proceedings and conventional litigation
