Specifically, the program will first examine what employers should do during the inspection in order to prepare themselves to defend OSHA citations that they may receive. It will also examine what steps employers should take, once citations are received, to prepare for handling the OSHA informal conference and any type of mandatory settlement conference if the penalties are over $100,000. Additionally, the webinar will examine effective strategies in preparing for and handling hearings before the Occupational Safety & Health Review Commission Administrative Law Judges and the Review Commissioners.  Finally, the program will discuss how employers can use different strategies to significantly reducing penalty amounts as well as insuring that proper abatement of the citations is made and the proper certification documented.
