Occupational Health and Safety Expert Witnesses

Occupational safety has become increasingly vital in the COVID-19 age. Essential employers —plus reopening business owners—have numerous new protective measures to follow to ensure the health and safety of both workers and customers. As you prepare COVID-19 related workplace safety litigation, an occupational health and safety expert witness will be important to consult for identifying areas of negligence during the health crisis, plus opine on official preventative responsibilities for businesses post-pandemic.

An occupational health and safety expert witness can discuss:

  • Potential workplace hazards introduced by COVID-19
  • Preventative responsibilities for employers
  • OSHA compliance for employers
  • Compliance with CDC business guidelines
  • Adherence with emerging safety mandates for reopening businesses
