What if I receive an OSHA citation?

Hazardous conditions should be abated at the time of the inspection with OSHA if at all possible. If not, abatement should be begin soon after the closing conference with the Compliance Officer. The official citation will be received (typically at EHS) a few weeks later, at which time the abatement period will have already passed. A representative from EHS will revisit the site and take pictures or gather documentation as proof necessary to respond back to OSHA and close the citation.
