OSHA LEGAL SERVICES FOR THE LOGISTICS INDUSTRY

The logistics and warehousing industry faces unique challenges when it comes to safety and OSHA, given the serious hazards present and the nature of many facilities.  We have the industry background and experience to help you face these challenges.  Whether your goal is to prevent an OSHA inspection altogether, manage an inspection already underway, or evaluate OSHA citations received, we can help.

We are intimately familiar with the OSHA General Industry Standards (1910 Standards) and the common safety/OSHA hazards and pitfalls at these facilities, having handled countless inspections and citations dealing with powered industrial trucks, shelving, PPE (hardhats, safety glasses, steel toe boots, etc.), fall protection, ladders, HAZCOM, and document management and retention, and can help you navigate those issues.
