In the third episode of our workplace accident case study podcast series, Shareholder Kevin Bland (Orange County) and Shareholder Karen Tynan (Sacramento) discuss a trial challenging a citation for an employee who experienced a heart attack while standing on a step-up bench. Karen and Kevin review the trial strategy that led to the citation being voided, with a focus on the importance of the language in the Division of Occupational Safety and Health’s (Cal/OSHA) Portable Ladder regulations. They also discuss settlement offers and abatement and touch on trends in other states, including Oregon and Washington.
