Post-Incident & Post-OSHA Inspection Safety Consulting
If your company has experienced an accident or has undergone an OSHA inspection that resulted in citations and penalties, you might be unsure of what to do next. Fletcher Safety Consulting offers services to help guide companies through the confusion and apprehension of OSHA’s official processes. With the help of our experienced staff, we will help you navigate the intricacies of OSHA inspections, non-formal investigations, informal conferences, settlement conferences, PMA’s, abatement certifications, and other OSHA activities. We are not lawyers and therefore do not give legal advice, but in the event legal counsel is indicated, we can refer you to the appropriate parties.
After an OSHA inspection, you will be notified of any alleged violations and fines through a Citation and Notification of Penalty. You will be required to address these issues by utilizing your right to accept, contest, or negotiate these allegations. Your choice must be exercised within very specific time frames. It is very common to read the violations and not fully understand what they mean or what is being required of your company. Having worked for OSHA for many years, our consultants are especially qualified to guide you through this process. If you do elect to exercise your right to an informal conference, we can help you develop a settlement strategy, assist with planning corrective actions, recommend enhanced settlement provisions, and explain the process through every step.
Workplace accidents should be investigated promptly and efficiently. The consultants at Fletcher Safety Consulting are available to perform incident investigations and to walk you through each step of the process following an accident such as recordkeeping, reporting requirements, causal analysis, mitigation, and retraining. Our team is experienced in OSHA incident investigation, and we will be able to assess the scene, investigate the event, and interview witnesses. Understanding the cause and contributing factors of an accident will help you to enhance procedures and improve training in a way that will reduce the probability of similar events in the future.
