All employers want to provide a safe environment for their employees, but sometimes accidents happen resulting in injury or death, or employees may complain about real or perceived safety conditions. Regulations and policies issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and similar state and local agencies govern these situations. In most instances, an inspection and investigation will result. The Kullman Firm has experienced attorneys in each of our offices who can respond immediately and guide employers through these proceedings and hopefully avoid large penalties. We also have experienced attorneys who are knowledgeable on situations involving workplace violence, substance abuse and drug and alcohol testing.
