Over the Edge is coming to Lancaster for the first time - are YOU in? In support of SouthEast Lancaster Health Services, Mike Hillard, Jeff Goss, Stacey Brubaker and Caroline Hess have all agreed to go "Over the Edge", but they need a little help. In order for them to have this once in a lifetime experience, they each must raise $1,000. This hardworking nonprofit cares for 22,000 of our neighbors here in Lancaster every year. And all they're asking is for us to go Over the Edge for one day. Just a small donation will go a long way to helping us meet our goal for Southeast Lancaster Health Services.

On Tuesday, September 26, 2017, BCGL employment and labor attorney Angela Sanders presented "OSHA Compliance for the Small Business Client" at the Lancaster Bar Association. 

It's a common misconception that OSHA applies only to businesses in manufacturing, construction and other trade industries.  In reality, all employers, even those whose work takes place in small office settings, are subject to OSHA.  Over the past few years, OSHA has expanded regulations which impact small employers and created new compliance obligations.  It is important for employers to to understand their safety obligations and compliance requirements to avoid an OSHA inspection and enforcement.

To learn more about how OSHA may impact your business or BCGL's employment law services, contact Angela Sanders at 717-945-5762 or
