Merlin Law Group has agreed to host an OSHA 30 class being put on by 1 Life Safety in Houston on February 4th – 7th. This blog has repeatedly posted about how contractor costs to comply with OSHA on a job should be included in insurance estimates. This class is a great opportunity to get your certification and learn exactly what is required by law for contractor compliance.

It is important for anyone that deals with cost to repair property damage to understand the regulations and costs associated with completing a property repair. Often these costs are left out of insurance company estimates to complete the repair. Recently, while mediating one of our cases, one of the main disputes related to amounts in the insured’s expert’s report that related to OSHA requirements that would apply to a roofer while repairing the property. Ultimately, we were able to settle the case for an amount that included the OSHA required expenses after establishing their need.

You can register for the course here. Attendance is limited and will fill-up quickly, so don’t wait to register.
