Join us for an exclusive presentation from Sherman and Howard on the Practical Aspects of an OSHA Investigation
There are many aspects of an OSHA investigation that many people fail to understand when they are in the middle of the crisis. How do you handle the evidence while still cooperating with worker’s compensation providers, publicity and family issues related to the incident?
If it can be reasonably anticipated that there will be civil litigation, which you can expect if there was a fatality, multiple injures or significant property damage, then steps must be taken to preserve evidence. Evidence preservation may include electronic emails and texts to physical evidence. How do you preserve this evidence and prevent additional litigation problems in the future?
Multiple agencies may be onsite at the time of the incident, law enforcement, state or federal agencies, and insurance representatives. Who has authority and who does not?
When meeting with OSHA and discussing abatement measures, are you or your general counsel attorney familiar with what language to request in the final agreement. Failing to request non-admissions language in the final settlement with OSHA may open you up to additional litigation during a civil trial. Workers compensation carriers appreciate this type of language in settlements.
How will you handle dealing with news stations and other news sources? Do you have a designated spokesperson in place who understands how their statements may affect the company?
Pat Miller and his team will answer these questions and others at our presentation on March 27th, 2019.
