Perspectives On OSHA And Benzene Regulations/Toxic Torts and Environmental Law Committee Newsletter


Rigorous and conscientious compliance with OSHA regulations

exemplifies an employer’s interest in worker safety and remains

the first line of defense for an employer. Management decisions

which involve informed and thoughtful consideration for worker

safety benefit the company not only in day to day operations, but in

the litigation setting as well. A defendant makes its best

appearance at trial where the company witness credibly explains

how the company has meticulously complied with the workplace

practice and record keeping requirements of OSHA. A company’s

knowledge of and compliance with OSHA regulations is a critical

element in a company’s defense in a lawsuit alleging personal

injuries from benzene exposure. To assist counsel and

management in this line of defense, this article will provide a

historical analysis of OSHA, the regulations relating to workplace

safety in the use of benzene-related products and will outline

strategic defense strategies.
