Fisher & Phillips attorneys work with employers in all industries to assist them in achieving full compliance with all OSHA standards; developing a comprehensive safety and health program; and preventing workplace safety and health injuries, illnesses and fatalities. Our preventive work includes advice on how to comply with applicable federal and state workplace safety laws and regulations, including standards under the OSHA and MSHActs. We represent employers during safety and health inspections and in enforcement actions brought by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Mine Safety and Health Administration, and state safety agencies.
Additionally, our attorneys assist employers to establish and implement substance abuse testing and prevention programs, as well as policies and procedures addressing violence in the workplace. We work with employers involved with workplace violence events to provide trauma response, counseling, and threat assessment, and we seek restraining orders and injunctions where appropriate against violent or threatening persons.
Our attorneys also defend employers from whistleblower claims involving 21 different statutes investigated by OSHA, as well as under various state laws.
