National Veterans OSHA Attorneys

Assisting Veteran-Owned Businesses with OSHA Safety Regulations Nationwide

As a business owner, you work hard to maintain a safe and healthy work environment for your employees. Despite your best efforts, however, problems can still develop. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as well as state-equivalent agencies are responsible for setting and enforcing minimum health and safety standards in the workplace, and these regulatory authorities can issue citations and other penalties to businesses who are not in compliance.

Even when you are confident your business is in compliance with all relevant laws, a routine inspection can still be a stressful endeavor. Should an employee suffer an injury in your workplace, you must have a thorough understanding of your rights and obligations as you proactively prepare for the accident investigation.

The Veterans Advocacy Law Group is a service-disabled Veteran-owned law firm that is ready to assist Veteran-owned businesses with OSHA and workplace safety issues, including how to respond to accidents that have already occurred.

Whether you are looking for compliance guidance, need help defending against OSHA citation enforcement, or require assistance managing the consequences of a workplace accident, our team can provide the dedicated, tenacious legal advocacy your business needs to secure a favorable outcome.

Types of OSHA and Workplace Safety Matters We Handle

In some states, a state-run agency that is authorized by OSHA (but operates independently of the federal agency) has jurisdiction over workplace safety issues. No matter the state your business operates in, we can help you and your company’s leadership understand the applicable workplace safety rules and regulations. 

Our team at The Veterans Advocacy Law Group can assist Veteran-owned businesses with:

  • Inspection preparation
  • Regulatory training
  • Best practices development
  • Compliance audits
  • Informal conference representation
  • Injury reporting compliance and audits
  • Accident investigations
  • Citation enforcement defense (including litigation)
  • Appeals

All employers – including employers that are exempt from some OSHA rules – must report all workplace accidents that require inpatient hospitalization within 24 hours of learning about the incident. This includes illnesses, amputations, and eye loss. Note that these reporting rules only apply when the injury or illness is work-related, meaning it occurred on the job while an employee was performing their work responsibilities. 

Should a workplace accident result in a fatality, employers have only eight hours from the time they learned about the incident to report the death to OSHA. If an employee’s work-related injuries later result in death, their employer has 30 days from the date of their passing to report the fatality.

Additionally, your business must keep detailed, accurate records of all workplace accidents, including hospitalizations and fatalities. From February to April of each year, employers must make the list of injuries, illnesses, and fatalities of the preceding year available to their employees. They must also maintain these records for at least five years. We can review your business’s specific reporting obligations and help you ensure you remain in compliance.

OSHA Citation Defense

When you receive an OSHA citation after an inspection, you will get information on the nature of the violation, what steps must be taken to correct it, how long you have to fix the issue, and the penalties that will be assessed. You have the right to contest a citation you feel is unfair, but you will only have 15 days from the date of receipt to file a Notice of Intent to Contest. 

Contesting an OSHA citation requires litigation, and hiring capable legal representation is in your best interest. Our national Veterans OSHA attorneys can represent you before the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission (OSHRC) and the administrative judge assigned to your case. Should we receive an unfavorable decision, we are more than prepared to pursue all available We can fight to reduce or eliminate fines and other consequences of OSHA violations.
