OSHA Inspection Threats: How To Find and Fix Hazards Before The Feds Do

Description:

At a recent meeting for the American Bar Association, two OSHA officials said the agency is focused on enterprise-wide enforcement and on identifying companies that fit the bill for its Severe Violator Enforcement Program. This report is from the National Law Review.

Since the new penalty provision took effect last year, OSHA penalties have skyrocketed by 80%, with a potential maximum fine of $127,000. Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA, Tom Galassi, said the per-citation average penalty has gone up from $3,285 to $5,087. This means safety managers have had to deal with the growing threat of their companies being placed on the hook for crippling financial penalties in the event of OSHA inspections.

Don’t wait for OSHA inspectors to show up at your worksite to figure out whether your company policies or practices could create legal liability and lead to costly citations. Instead conduct regular, comprehensive self-audits of your safety practices so you can find and fix hazards before they become fines.

Join us for an in-depth webinar that will shed light on how to set up an effective safety audit process to pass OSHA inspections with flying colors. You’ll learn how to establish audit protocols, who should be on the audit team, how to document the audit process and preserve attorney-client privilege, track findings, make disclosures to regulatory agencies when required, and ensure the appropriate completion of audit findings.

You’ll learn:

  • How to evaluate written safety compliance and audit documents
  • How legal privilege may apply to safety and health documents
  • Best practices for evaluating whether safety training requirements have been met
  • Tips for handling on-site inspections without self-incrimination
  • Various types of OSHA inspections, their scope, and your organization’s rights and responsibilities based on the enforcement situation presented
  • How to satisfy OSHA’s new reporting requirements for severe injury cases
  • When warrants are generally required and how to respond to subpoenas

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
