Virginia has its own occupational safety and health program, which is the Commonwealth’s counterpart to the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Attorneys that work with businesses and clients in a variety of Virginia practice areas will likely encounter questions related to the Virginia Occupational Safety and Health (VOSH) program at some point in their careers. This lively, interactive seminar will prepare Virginia lawyers to understand Virginia’s OSHA system better, handle citations, and respond to these matters effectively.

Experienced practitioners Brett Marston and Spencer Wiegard will be joined by Robert Feild, Senior Staff Attorney with Virginia’s Department of Labor and Industry (DOLI), to share their insight and practical advice for understanding Virginia’s OSHA system and handling VOSH citations in Virginia.
