An employer or employee can request an informal conference to discuss with Oregon OSHA:
A request for an informal conference alone is not considered an appeal, although the same request may serve as both a request for an informal conference and a request for an appeal, provided that it includes all the required elements.
Appeals are scheduled for an informal conference with an Oregon OSHA appeals specialist. During that conference, the appeals specialist, the compliance officer, and the employer will discuss the issues in question. The appeals specialist has the authority to resolve the citation.
An employer who is not satisfied with the informal conference may further pursue the matter before an administrative law judge of the Workers’ Compensation Board.
