Health, Safety & Drug Testing
The increase in workplace safety law enforcement has required employers to address the demands imposed by the state and federal agencies that enforce these standards and regulations. At the same time, however, clients who go to Bryan Cave to develop fully-integrated safety programs often find that there is a significant decrease in the costs associated with workplace injuries and illnesses, including a reduction in the payment of workers' compensation benefits.
Bryan Cave’s national OSHA practice includes representation of management in safety and health litigation arising out of enforcement actions in both federal and state OSHA administered plans. We also provide counseling services, which includes developing written safety and health programs, conducting health and safety compliance audits, and assisting employers with OSHA standards and regulations. The firm's lawyers also have a vast amount of experience in dealing with drug and alcohol testing and avoidance programs.
