OSHA Defense in Florida
Even with the primary industries of tourism and agriculture, companies in Florida receive OSHA violation citations on a regular basis. Companies that do not conform to OSHA regulations face steep fines and must alter processes and equipment to meet current safety standards, frequently at considerable cost. If an OSHA citation threatens your business, you need a strong defense to prevent additional expenses that could damage your company.

Florida is not a manufacturing hub, but it still has a great many industries that require compliance with OSHA regulations. Tourism's many facets, including entertainment, transportation and hotels, must provide safe workplaces for employees and ensure that no serious harm comes to them. Agriculture has many regulations because of heavy machinery and chemicals. Florida is also home to several biotech companies as well as aeronautics companies and electronics manufacturers.
