Texas OSHA Law Attorneys
Helping Large Businesses & Newcomers Comply with OSHA Regulation
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration comprehensively lays out the rights and responsibilities of employers-so much so that it can be difficult for employers to understand everything that they are obligated to do. At Hendershot, Cowart & Hisey, P.C., our Houston OSHA law attorneys are here to help employers understand their obligations-and defend them against citations when they are accused of failing to meet those obligations.
Our firm has vast experience helping companies in the following areas:
- Defending them against OSHA citations
- Contesting the validity of OSHA citations
- Negotiating to reduce OSHA penalties
- Creating safety plans to prevent workplace accidents
- Developing effective Incident Command Systems (ICS)
For more than 25 years, our OSHA defense attorneys have worked with employers, safety and health professionals, compliance officers, training directors, human resources personnel and others, as well as to ensure that the duty to provide workers with a safe workplace is met. Our goal in each of our cases has been ensuring the long-term success and viability of the client's business while helping them develop safe workplaces.
Employers are wise to take proactive steps to meet OSHA requirements, not only to avoid run-ins with OSHA, but to keep employees healthy and happy. Our lawyers help employers comply with voluntary training guidelines, as well as general industry training and construction training requirements.
While many employers start with off-the-shelf programs, they may find that the savings these programs provide come at the cost of being non-industry specific or non-workplace specific. We create tailored OSHA safety programs and trainings for the employer and the industry, as OSHA requirements can vary dramatically from one industry to the next.
In addition to compliance matters, we provide assistance with catastrophe management and planning.
