Industrial Safety Expert Witnesses
Industrial safety expert witness candidates typically have backgrounds in occupational health, human factors, environmental health, and/or safety management. These expert witnesses may be certified industrial hygienists, and may be considered OSHA experts.
Industrial safety refers to the policies and procedures put in place by an organization to protect its employees and assets at a worksite. The Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) is the primary U.S. regulatory body dedicated to industrial safety, and OSHA regulations are enforced through compliance inspections. The health and safety risks encompass chemicals, biological agents, physical factors, adverse ergonomic conditions, allergens, and psychosocial risk factors.
A subject matter expert in industrial safety might be called upon to provide expert testimony in toxic tort personal injury matters, or insurance disputes. Litigation support services by an industrial safety expert could include chemical exposure assessment, toxicology report review, accident reconstruction, expert reports, and expert witness testimony at a trial. In addition, a law firm may request a construction industry expert for pre-litigation consulting services. Representative matters have involved:
- OSHA compliance audits and certifications,
- indoor air quality safety consulting at a New York warehouse,
- confined spaces,
- forklift safety issues and standard of care,
- OSHA safety training,
- hazardous energy lockout/tagout,
- industrial hygiene assessment,
