Local Company Takes on OSHA and Wins
In an earlier article in this publication I wrote about OSHA’s new theory of issuing multiple citations, offering to settle them down for little or no fine, just so they would have a record with a company so any repeat violations might now be subject to significantly higher penalties: Business Owners Beware of OSHA’s new tactic, Nevada Business Weekly January 23, 2012.
In that article I referenced a client of mine that I had been negotiating on behalf of with OSHA. That customer was Victory Woodworks in Sparks. Victory had a project in Las Vegas that they had been working on that was nearing completion. OSHA had come to the jobsite to conduct an inspection. No one from Victory had been working at the site that week, yet the OSHA inspector saw their gang box and some tools chained to it, and told the general contractor that he wanted to inspect their tools.
