The Miami-Dade area is host to some of the most magnificent buildings in the state; however, being part of the construction industry is not what most people would consider easy. The inherently dangerous nature of the career field makes any construction-related business a target for OSHA and even a small mistake can trigger events that can put your company in jeopardy.
No matter how skilled or experienced a construction professional may be, legal issues are almost inevitable. When they arise, you will need a tenacious South FL construction attorney to defend your livelihood, reputation, and bottom line.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was created to keep workers of every profession safe and healthy on the job. That said, the construction industry is more dangerous than most other industries and thousands of injuries and fatalities occur each year. Therefore, the construction industry is a more prominent target for OSHA inspections by default.
Have you been issued an OSHA violation for non-compliance? A small yet ill-fated mistake or untimely inspection can land even the most careful, experienced business owners in hot water. If this has happened to you, it is critical to call a South FL construction attorney immediately. Our firm defends contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, manufacturers, and others against OSHA complaints and citations, both in South Florida and nationally. The attorneys at Cotney Construction Law have represented clients with serious, repeat, and willful violations, including citations based on fatalities.
Perhaps you are not in this situation, but are seeking legal counsel to prevent a potential future complaint or violation from happening. Our lawyers are well-versed in OSHA’s inspection and citation processes, so they can also work with you to prepare for an anticipated OSHA inspection, or simply provide counsel regarding how to keep your workplace compliant.
