Fritz & Bianculli, LLC is the first firm where ALL ATTORNEYS AND STAFF ARE OSHA CERTIFIED!!!

WHAT IS OSHA?

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is the federal agency responsible for developing, issuing and enforcing workplace safety laws. So, no matter where you work, the OSHA laws must be followed to make sure you are safe at work. Unfortunately, most workplace accidents are the direct result of people or companies failing to follow OSHA safety laws.

Why should you have OSHA certified attorneys and staff work on your case?

In our experience, many people are told they do not have a case because the attorney reviewing it did not know that OSHA laws had been violated. Failing to follow OSHA safety law, leads to most workplace accidents. As a result, it is critically important for anyone who suffers a workplace accident to have attorneys and staff certified in OSHA laws. Thus, all at Fritz and Bianculli now have OSHA certification to better serve our clients who have been victims of workplace accidents.

So, if you, a family member or a friend has suffered a workplace accident, contact Fritz and Bianculli for a FREE CONSULTATION. Even if you have had your workplace accident case rejected by another attorney or firm. We have successful pursued cases where other attorneys thought no case existed. And, there are no fees for representation if no recovery is made. Please know there are time limitation on your ability to pursue a case—so call
Fritz and Bianculli today.

New OSHA Rules Governing Reporting and Anti-Retaliation in Workplace Safety Matters

Earlier this month, OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) issued a ruling which will likely have a significant impact on workers and employers. The final rule mandates that employers submit certain workplace safety information electronically. It also forbids any kind of retaliation against employees who report safety concerns. DOL (Department of Labor) officials say the new ruling will help build an effective public database on work injury and illness.

The creation of a public database is a change in practice. The Occupational Safety and Health Act give the DOL authority to direct employers to maintain safety records and to provide access to those records, but such information has always been privately held. The rules that have been in effect require an employer to keep records of all injuries or illnesses, but employers need only disclose that information in an annual report to OSHA. Effective next January, when the new rule goes into effect, all data will be electronically submitted at the time of the accident or illness, or upon discovery of such. The information will immediately become available on OSHA’s website, where it can be seen by anyone.

The final rule also amends the guidelines for addressing retaliatory conduct by employers. Current law prohibits retaliatory action but also prohibits OSHA from acting unless the employee submits a complaint. Under the new rule, OSHA can take action without a complaint from an employee.
