Cummins, Goodman, Denley & Vickers, P.C. has been at the forefront of successfully representing employers in OSHA-related matters in the Pacific Northwest and around the country for over 20 years.
Our long history and experience interacting with the state and federal regulatory agencies benefit employers in ways that go well beyond questions of whether a safety issue warrants an administrative citation and penalty. Complex OSHA-related issues can and often do spill over into the civil arena when workplace injuries or fatalities are involved. Early and effective attorney involvement is particularly critical in mitigating overall exposure in such cases. Successful handling of OSHA investigations often leads to the avoidance of costly civil litigation that might otherwise be triggered by an injury-related OSHA citation.
Attorneys in our OSHA practice group represent employers in a broad range of safety and health issues. From compliance inspections to accident investigations, administrative citation defense to the agency legislative and rulemaking processes, our attorneys employ an advocacy-oriented approach to mitigate potential exposures, defend our clients’ businesses, and advance safety and health policy that we and our clients believe to be reasonable, rational, and effective.
