Perhaps of all of the interactions that occur with regulatory agencies, the unannounced OSHA inspection is the most stressful, least understood by business owners. The key to managing a surprise OSHA inspection or a letter of complaint directed at your company is to understand what the process is and what the OSHA inspectors are looking for. This presentation will explain what the process is for an OSHA inspection and how to respond to a letter of complaint. It also will explain how employees and unions figure into the inspection equation and how to expedite the inspection and help resolve issues before they become major problems.
This session will help business owners and safety personnel have a better understanding and feel more in control of the situation when OSHA inspectors arrive at their sites, especially if they arrive unannounced.
