Most everyone agrees that workplace safety matters. Our best clients have core principles requiring that everyone goes home at the end of a day’s work in the same condition and health as they arrived. But, anyone who’s ever dealt with OSHA, MSHA, other safety and health regulators, or workers’ comp knows that simply achieving safety is not enough. Compliance with a long list of regulations matters, too. In short, Safety Law Matters.
This blog is brought to you by a number of workplace safety and health lawyers of law firm Husch Blackwell LLP. We work across industries regulated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), and other state and federal agencies to help our clients train, comply, and minimize risk even when the unexpected occurs.
From mining to metalworking, construction to communications towers, retail to railroads, healthcare to hair salons, we strive to bring a legal perspective to the front line of your operations. Whether you need proactive advice for complying with OSHA or MSHA rules, strategies for keeping minor incidents or inspections from becoming major problems, or sophisticated representation to defend against unjustified citations and enforcement, you should be looking for a safety and health lawyer who knows which is the top end of a hard hat.
(For lawyers like us, hard hats, steel-toed boots, and safety glasses are not just fashion statements. They’re part of the job. Shouldn’t your safety and health lawyer know something about your operations and the safety and health challenges of your industry?)
