Handle an OSHA Citation
- After OSHA inspects a workplace, it may issue citations for any violations it finds.
- Upon receipt of a citation, an employer must post it for at least three days or until the violation is fixed.
- An employer may accept the citation and pay the penalty and fix the violation.
- If an employer chooses to fight the citation, it has 15 working days to file a Notice of Contest with OSHA.
