On June 10, 2014, Epstein Becker Green's national OSHA Practice Group presented a webinar regarding OSHA's Severe Violator Enforcement Program (SVEP). The SVEP is an OSHA enforcement program intended by OSHA to direct its enforcement resources at employers whom OSHA believes are “indifferent to their OSH Act obligations."
The webinar covered:
- What the SVEP is;
- How and when employers "qualify" into it;
- What the consequences are for doing so;
- Interesting data and trends about the SVEP; and
- Tips to help employers avoid this fate.
This webinar was the second part in a five-part OSHA webinar series for employers facing the daunting task of complying with OSHA's numerous federal and state occupational safety and health standards and regulations.
