This is an Osha issue - I'm hoping you're an expert in this

This is an Osha issue - I'm hoping you're an expert in this area - am I talking to the right person? Thx!JA: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?Customer: I have a business with only 2 employeesJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I'm in Colorado so it's at will.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Here's some background: A former employee cut his hand using a saw in my shop, which he was specifically told not use. He quit a few days later and filed a Worker's Comp claim. He was angry when his compensation check was reduced for not following my instruction, which resulted in his injury. So he filed an "anonymous" Osha complaint. It's utterly without merit but it brought Osha out to my shop. As most everyone knows, it could start with a bogus claim but once Osha has their hands on you they try to find other violations if the original one doesn't stick. As such, they want to now come out to my shop, interview me on camera and do a full inspection of my business, which has all of 2 employees. I asked if I had to allow this inspection right then, or could I speak with an attorney first and get some advice. He said that would be alright but I'm worried that they may see that as being uncooperative and set out to really let me have it. They said they were going to call me back but I haven't heard from them.
