Our lawyers have been representing clients in OSHA matters from the early 1970s and have more than 100 combined years of experience in OSHA compliance and litigation. We have handled some of the leading cases establishing the law in the OSHA area.
Our years of experience in workplace safety law have given us the ability to help companies develop policies and procedures to comply with health and safety regulations such as noise, exposure, recordkeeping, lockout/tag out, respirator, confined space, toxic substances, machine guarding, hazard communication, and other OSHA safety and health standards. We provide proactive, preventive, practical advice on compliance issues, which can include an audit of compliance practices and walk-around reviews of plant operations. We also conduct due diligence reviews of OSHA related practices and issues during mergers and acquisitions. Locke Lord's labor and employment lawyers handle OSHA matters for clients representing all types of industries, including manufacturing, petrochemical, energy, health care, construction, waste disposal and recycling, and contract assembly.
