Be Ready to Defend the Castle: Employers Need a Written OSHA Inspection Management Policy
Federal OSHA is increasing inspections and issuing citations more aggressively, leading to potential legal and business consequences for employers. Employers can reduce the probability of citations by implementing a comprehensive OSHA inspection management strategy and written program. The strategy should include elements such as professionalism, contacting key individuals, managing the scope of inspections, and careful handling of interviews and document requests. Having a well-prepared inspection management policy can help employers navigate OSHA inspections effectively.
