Uh Oh, OSHA’s Here: How to Prepare For and Manage OSHA Inspections
Over the past year, the number of OSHA inspections has soared, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic eased and restrictions were lifted. We are seeing more inspections, higher penalties, record numbers of $100K+ citation packages, and a continuing rise in willful and repeat citations and worker safety criminal prosecutions. OSHA has also continued its aggressive inspection strategies, including targeted enforcement initiatives and emphasis programs, that create a minefield for employers. In short, the consequences for employers being caught ill-prepared for an OSHA inspection, and making bad choices during an inspection, are more dire now than ever.

This webinar will provide employers with the knowledge and tools they need to prepare in advance for an OSHA inspection, and once an OSHA inspection begins, to manage it to a successful outcome.

Participants in this webinar will learn:

• Employers’ Goals for managing an OSHA inspection
• Steps employers can take now to prepare in advance for an OSHA inspection
• Employers’, employees’, and OSHA’s rights during OSHA inspections
• Stages of OSHA inspections, with tips and strategies to manage each stage
