An unannounced OSHA inspection can result in chaos resulting in multiple citations, huge fines and even criminal proceedings; however, that doesn't have to be the end result. Employers have rights during and after an OSHA inspection. Understanding your rights and how to best manage a visit by OSHA is a first step in controlling the financial outcomes of an inspection and protecting your public image. By implementing good risk management techniques to control risks and ensure compliance, an OSHA inspection can be easily managed.
This webinar archive will help EHS managers identify steps that can be taken to avoid an inspection. We will also discuss important actions to take during an OSHA inspection, and how to develop a strategy to address citations and fines resulting from the inspection.
