OSHA and Workplace Accident Investigations: What Employers Need to Know

90 Minutes

Recorded Webinar


No employer should view a workplace accident as “ordinary” or run-of-the-mill—especially when it results in injuries, or worse, fatalities. Therefore, no OSHA investigation is “routine”. While there is no set protocol for investigating every workplace accident, you can be aware of and address key considerations and common themes to ensure that your company as prepared they can be for an OSHA investigation.

Workplace accidents and resulting OSHA investigations, lead to serious legal consequences, including, without limitation, civil penalties, civil liability, citations, claims, or charges by OSHA, the injured employee(s) and/or victim(s), other employees, or third parties. Each such result can give rise to astronomical costs, and, in combination, those costs can increase exponentially. In extreme cases, criminal prosecutions are also a possibility.

In order to address workplace accidents effectively, and efficiently, you will need to heed the Boy Scout Motto: “Be prepared”. You will need to actually plan for the possibility (or likelihood) of accidents before they happen.
