Can I Contest The Citations? If So, What Is The Contest Process?

Yes. An employer to whom a citation or proposed penalty has been issued may contest the citation by notifying, in writing, the VOSH regional office that issued the citation(s). The notice of contest must be mailed or delivered by hand within 15 working days from the receipt of the citation or proposed penalty. No mistake, inadvertence, or neglect on the part of the employer shall serve to extend the 15 working day period in which the employer must contest.
