OSHA's Top 5 Inspection Priorities For 2015 And Beyond: Compliance Threats And Strategies For Mitigating Your Risks
|Date / Time:
It’s important for safety managers to get a handle on OSHA’s current inspection priorities. If you can pinpoint where OSHA is focusing its efforts, you can develop a proactive strategy for ensuring that your safety program meets compliance requirements in the event you’re targeted for an inspection.
In order to understand what to expect from OSHA in the area of enforcement, the trick is to pull together information from various sources. For example, a very useful area is what OSHA has publicly announced. Another is to look at what violations have been typically cited for which organizations and industries historically, including the top 10 most frequently cited standards.
Armed with this knowledge, safety managers can develop a strategy to successfully prepare the organization for a possible OSHA inspection, which could lead to enforcement actions and costly penalties.
Join us when our presenter, a seasoned safety lawyer who has helped many organizations understand OSHA’s enforcement plans and strategies and successfully navigate the inspection process and frequently litigates OSHA citations alleging violations for her clients.
She will provide you with insight into OSHA’s likely areas of enforcement for the remainder of 2015 and beyond—and give you tips on how to achieve a successful outcome if your organization is inspected.
