The greatest obstacle to the settlement of OSHA citations is an unrealistic view and position taken by one or both parties to the settlement discussions. In order to prevent that, once citations are issued, we thoroughly evaluate and analyze the citations to identify the merit—or lack thereof—of the citations. We then prepare a comprehensive memorandum discussing the strengths and weaknesses of each citation and our defenses to those citations. Once the merits of the citations and the defenses have been identified, we work with you to formulate an aggressive settlement position that accounts for both the merits and your best interest. We then attend the informal conference with you, intelligently discussing the citations with the OSHA Area Director, and explaining the basis for our settlement position. It is through this frank discussion regarding the merits of the citations, and the things we will do to defeat them, that we obtain the best possible resolution for our clients without litigation.
