When OSHA knocks, workplace safety and health inspections are serious business for employers – rooted in statute in the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act. Safety professionals, industry associations, labor law attorneys and others who advise companies say the best preparation for an OSHA inspection is diligence and advance planning.”

“The objective of the Mock OSHA inspection is to identify safety program deficiencies and hazards. Corrective action can then be taken prior to a serious injury or a costly OSHA citation. Injuries can cause personal suffering, increased workers’ compensation costs, overtime costs, and reduced morale. Serious violations can bring fines of up to $7,000 each. Repeat offenses can cost up to 10 times the first-offense fine. Willful offenses (blatant disregard for OSHA rules) can cost up to $70,000 each. A single OSHA Inspection can cost tens of thousands of dollars in citation penalties.”

One of the best tips is to incorporate a good safety plan into your company's everyday operations.

"If you have a formal safety plan, follow OSHA rules, train your employees in safety practices, discipline those who don't work safely, and frequently conduct your own safety inspections, you will avoid costly accidents and have less to fear from an OSHA visit”.
