OSHA Defense

Due to the unexpected and often serious nature of workplace incidents, we understand that visits from OSHA inspectors cannot always be planned in advance.

VLT is skilled in on-site assistance and legal counseling throughout the entire OSHA process. We offer 24-hour emergency response. We can come to the site to assist with the investigation and bring experts and technology, if needed.

In the days that follow, we work with you on site to prepare and guide you and your employees through investigation, formal notice and walk-through. We then represent you throughout the administrative process in all conferences, document review and production and negotiations.

VLT Can Help:

  • On site Response
  • Walkthrough and Interview Preparation
  • Control Document Transmission
  • Full Representation in conferences and negotiations
  • Control media and publicity

OSHA Counseling

VLT’s OSHA team understands the complexities of OSHA requirements and how California’s OSHA laws interact with federal standards. We can help you create a plan to limit your OSHA exposure prior to any accident or investigation.

We offer counseling and guidance in every step of preventative risk management for OSHA. We are able to identify potential risks and workplace violations so that preventative measures can be taken before an incident occurs.

Establishing a set of compliance procedures with VLT will greatly reduce your chances of being cited for a violation. Our attorneys are well-versed in the complexities of OSHA standards and how California’s OSHA laws interact from federal standards.

VLT Can Help:
