OSHA gave us a citation for a safety violation and we have 30 days to correct it. If we follow the method OSHA suggested we can meet the deadline. However, we would like to set up a better and safer system though this will take us longer. Can we get extra time?
You can if the violation isn't too serious. In one case OSHA suggested buying portable fans to remove welding fumes. The employer wanted to install a permanent exhaust system. An Administrative Judge allowed him an extra year to make an adaptability surveys retrain his workers and buy and install the new system .
