Getting ready for your informal conference


The following are recommendations for Informal Conference preparation:

  • Begin putting corrective actions in place before the conference. If you are aware of the violations, you can begin abatement as soon as possible; you do not have to wait until the citation is received.

  • At the informal conference, provide evidence of the corrective actions that have been or are being taken to abate the violations. Evidence can include items such as the following: 
    • Purchase orders.
    • Photographs of corrections
    • Drafts of safety and health programs.
    • Documentation of employee training.
    • Documentation of policies or procedures being implemented to assist in complying with the citations.
