Does OSHA even regulate the Cannabis / Marijuana industry?
You found the “go-to” company in the cannabis industry for all things related to employee safety and OSHA Compliance.
The most frequent question we receive is “Do OSHA regulations even apply?” The answer is Yes, they absolutely do! and this misconception leaves many employees in jeopardy of injury and employers in jeopardy of extremely high fines or losing their businesses.
OSHA regulations apply to every employer with one or more employees and this industry is no exception. The confusion rises because OSHA is a federally run administrative body and Congress has yet to sanction legalization. Even so, local OSHA officers have inspected and issued citations and fines at marijuana facilities. At this time, owners can and have received inspections that are derived from referrals or complaints and must anticipate an inspection should there be a fatality, catastrophe or imminent danger.
We specialize in effective solutions and our clients avoid unnecessary fines.

An OSHA inspector is at my door- do I have to let them in?
Each case is different we will need more information to help you make the best decision based on your circumstances. If an employer refuses to admit an OSHA compliance officer or if an employer attempts to interfere with the inspection, the Act permits appropriate legal action, such as obtaining a warrant to inspect.
How will I know if OSHA is going to inspect my company?
Inspections are always conducted without advance notice. There are, however, special circumstances under which OSHA may give notice to the employer, but such a notice will normally be less than 24 hours. These circumstances include the following:
- Imminent danger situations that require correction as soon as possible;
- Accident investigations where the employer has notified the agency of a fatality or catastrophe;
- Inspections that must take place after regular business hours or that require special preparation;
- Cases where notice is required to ensure that the employer and employee representative or other personnel will be present;
- Cases where an inspection must be delayed for more than 5 working days when there is good cause; and
- Situations in which the OSHA Area Director determines that advance notice would produce a more thorough or effective inspection.
