This seminar will cover Cal-OSHA inspections and citation defense strategies.  Further, a workplace fatality in California where a violation of a safety order exists may result in criminal prosecution of the company or individual supervisors. Other sources of potential criminal liability—making false statements—may also arise during OSHA inspections. How significant is the risk of criminal prosecution, and should it change your approach to OSHA fatality inspections? Now apply what you’ve learned about the potential risks of a criminal prosecution. Using a scenario based on real-life experiences, attendees will participate as team members in a prototypical company’s “workplace crisis center” as a fatality investigation unfolds. At the conclusion, you will be prepared to spot potential issues that could lead to criminal prosecution.
