Post-Citation OSHA Settlement Tips and Strategies
Presented by Eric J. Conn, Kate McMahon, Aaron Gelb and Special Guest

You just received a set of OSHA citations in the mail. Now what? Should we accept the citations and pay the penalty? Should we participate in an Informal Settlement Conference with the OSHA Area Office? Should we contest the citations? If we contest, does that mean we’re heading to a trial? What does a good settlement look like and how can we achieve our settlement goals?

This webinar will explain the post-citation process and provide tips and strategies for resolving OSHA citations in a manner that prevents future “Repeat” violations, reduces the penalty, mitigates the impact of the citations on potential criminal prosecutions and/or personal injury or wrongful death suits, and helps you avoid the Severe Violator Enforcement Program.

During this webinar, participants will learn about:

• Post-Citation options and processes
• How to assess the potential future impact of OSHA citations
• Settlement goals
• Tips and strategies to achieve settlement goals
