Greg Dillard Comments on OSH Act and Other Safety Liabilities for Employers

Firm News | March 26, 2018

Environmental and Workplace Safety partner Greg Dillard was quoted in an article by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) on how employers need to be concerned about more than just Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) penalties in a workplace safety incident. Greg noted that post-accident criminal investigations or prosecutions can be conducted under other federal laws, such as the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act or the Mine Safety and Health Act. He stated, "There's a new multidisciplinary approach to criminal enforcement and worker safety. It's now common for federal civil and criminal, state, and local investigations to proceed concurrently." ("Employers May Face State Criminal Liability for Safety Violations," March 16, 2018)
