Bradford T. Hammock's national practice focuses on all aspects of occupational safety and health law. In particular, Brad provides invaluable assistance to employers in a preventive practice, including:

  • Conducting full-scale safety and health compliance audits
  • Reviewing and revising corporate safety and health policies
  • Conducting manager and supervisor training on employee safety and health

Brad works closely with employers to help them understand and implement safety and health management systems. In addition, he represents employers throughout OSHA rulemaking proceedings, including OSHA’s informal public hearings on proposed rules. Brad also defends employers against OSHA enforcement actions. For an employer that is the target of an OSHA inspection, he offers representation from the start of the inspection through settlement or litigation.

Prior to joining Littler, Brad was the Washington, D.C. region office managing principal of a large national firm representing management in workplace law matters. He was previously an OSHA attorney within the Department of Labor, serving as lead counsel for safety standards. Brad is widely regarded as one of the nation’s most knowledgeable attorneys on the topics of OSHA recordkeeping, crystalline silica, and ergonomics. 

Brad is a popular guest speaker and lecturer on OSHA issues. He has published numerous articles on occupational safety and health law. While attending law school, he was editor-in-chief of the Syracuse Journal of International Law and Commerce, and associate editor of The Labor Lawyer.
