Over the past year, the number of OSHA inspections has soared, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic eased, and the National Emergency has now come to an end. We are seeing, as part of OSHA’s focused effort to use (and sharpen) all the tools in its toolbox, 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 continues, also, to look for new and creative ways to proactively inspect employers with targeted enforcement initiatives and emphasis programs, while also significantly expanding punitive measures such as the Severe Violator Enforcement Program (or SVEP), and the new Instance-by-Instance citation policy), creating a number of minefields for even the most conscientious 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 provided 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 learned:
- 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
