Legal Quick Hit (Webcast presentation during the meeting)
For some employers, it's a paralyzing moment. "OSHA!" someone announces at the door. It's a blue-clad inspector, foisting credentials for all to see. An uneasy silence ensues as managers, foremen and workers share uncertain glances. How should employers and their counsel react? Welcome the inspector in? Shut down? Block the door and start calling lawyers? Courtney Malveaux offers insight from his regulatory experience in his presentation of The "Do's and "Don't"s of OSHA. A former Labor Commissioner and President of the National Association of Government Labor Officials, Malveaux now represents and advises employers to help them move past the dread of an OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) inspection, and get back to the business of doing business. Please see Courtney's bio (attached) and join us for a lively, interactive discussion of how to survive the ordeal of an OSHA inspection. Courtney M. Malveaux, Esquire, Thompson McMullan, P.C.
