Safety Consultants and Workplace Safety Attorneys: Allies for Employers

In this podcast, shareholders Karen Tynan (Sacramento) and Kevin Bland (Orange County) discuss how workplace safety and health professionals and attorneys can work together to best serve their employer-clients. Kevin and Karen, who is the West Coast chair of Ogletree’s Workplace Safety and Health Practice Group, offer best practices for employers in situations that have evolved from being preventative to potential litigation. The speakers provide real-world examples of attorneys and safety consultants working together, as well as identify key problem areas. They also review the circumstances under which the attorney work-product doctrine and privileged communications come into play.
