Nearly every private employer could find an OSHA inspector on its doorstep one day, ready to open an inspection for health and safety violations. The results can be citations with significant financial penalties, costly changes to operations, negative publicity, and challenging community and employee relations. How can you minimize these risks?

In this first installment of our health and safety compliance strategies series, Husch Blackwell attorneys will arm you with the strategies you need to confidently navigate these difficult situations.
