This month’s guest speaker is Anthony Tilton! Anthony is a Shareholder with Ausley McMullen’s Construction Law Practice Group. Anthony defends general contractors, subcontractors, builders, and manufacturers throughout the United States in enforcement actions brought by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”). Anthony’s practice specifically focuses on occupational safety and health law relating to the litigation and appeal of OSHA citations against employers in the construction, manufacturing, transportation, and agricultural sectors. His OSHA defense work often involves compliance assistance representation, which allows Anthony to work with employers to build programs, policies, and procedures to prevent future OSHA enforcement. In addition to Safety and Health representation aimed at the prevention of OSHA Citations, Anthony appears regularly on behalf of industry employers in litigation and appeals before the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission and the United States Courts of Appeals. Anthony is a Certified Building Contractor who served as a residential and commercial general contractor on construction projects throughout the Southeast before transitioning to the practice of law.
Ten Mistakes Roofing Contractors Make When OSHA Arrives On Site: An Examination of the OSHA Inspection Process and the Rights Afforded to Roofers During an OSHA Inspection.
It’s the call you never want to receive. OSHA is on site, they brought the men down from the roof, and now they want to know who’s in charge here. Do you know your rights? Do you have to speak to the OSHA officer? Should you speak to the OSHA officer? What documents, tools, equipment, safety gear, and company programs will OSHA want to see, and when and how must you provide that information and evidence? The OSHA Inspection is not a pleasant event, and many roofing contractors often let their nerves get the best of them when confronted by a Federal or State Compliance Officer. Afterall, we want to comply, we want to be helpful, and we certainly do not want to appear disrespectful or disruptive of OSHA’s inspection. However, we must put ourselves in a position to defend our company from legal liability. Please join us for a presentation which addresses the most common mistakes roofing contractors make during an OSHA inspection and how we can correct those mistakes.
