Abigail K. White
Abbie is a Senior Associate in the OSHA and Workers’ Compensation practice groups at Auman, Mahan & Furry. Abbie represents employers of all sizes in matters related to occupational safety and health and workers’ compensation.
In her OSHA practice, Abbie adheres to the adage that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Abbie often works with clients to develop and improve their company safety and health programs, and routinely counsels clients in issues related to compliance with OSHA’s constantly evolving safety and health regulations. She frequently speaks to clients, employers and trade groups to educate them about the latest regulatory developments that affect their businesses.
Abbie also recognizes that no matter how safely an employer operates its business, it may face an OSHA inspection or even a citation. Abbie routinely guides employers through all stages of the OSHA inspection process—including the opening conference, walk through, employee interviews and the closing conference. When citations cannot be avoided, Abbie has significant litigation experience representing employers across the United States in proceedings before the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission and the various state agencies that administer OSHA-Approved State Plans. Abbie has represented employers in Alabama, California, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington and Wisconsin, to name a few.
