How to Survive an OSHA Inspection

An unexpected OSHA visit is rarely a friendly occurrence, and how well your organization is prepared for and handles the inspection can make all the difference in the outcome. OSHA’s core mission is to ensure a healthy workplace for every working person in the nation. In order to do so, however, their inspections are designed to gather evidence and can often lead to citations and penalties - a single Serious & Willful offence can be upwards of $70,000.

As more and more business owners, insurers, and others are scrutinizing OSHA records as a condition of doing business, these non-insurable penalties can be detrimental to your bottom line and impact your organization’s ability to do business.

In 2015, State OSHA Compliance Officials conducted 43,471 inspections, and you could be next. Will you know what to do when OSHA shows up at your door?
