OSHA Citation for Contractor's Alleged Failure to Exchange Lockout/Tagout Information with Host Employer Heard by U.S. Court of Appeals

The U.S. Court of Appeals held hearings recently on an OSHA citation issued against a contractor for failure to exchange lockout/tagout information with the host employer.  This case is particularly interesting because the inspection arose out of an injury incurred by the contractor’s employee – and because none of the host employees had access to the alleged.  In this program, we will cover:
  • The basic LOTO requirements that were the subject of this citation;
  • The contractor’s arguments in defending against this citation;
  • OSHA’s enforcement position involving the duty to exchange LOTO information;
  • OSHA’s enforcement position on whether employee exposure to a hazard is a necessary element in alleging a violation of a standard.
The OSHA 30/30 will be presented by partners in Keller and Heckman’s OSHA practice group, including Manesh Rath, David Sarvadi and Lawrence Halprin.
