Multi-Worksite Safety: Steps To Avoid Citations And Achieve Compliance Under OSHRC Enterprise-Wide Abatement Decision

Webinar: ID# 1023571
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
A 2015 Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission (OSHRC) ruling indicates that OSHA may have the authority to order abatement measures beyond specific measures identified in a citation(s). The practical impact means OSHA has increased enforcement authority across an enterprise.

For example: During an OSHA inspection, a transportation company’s facility was cited for failure to comply with the OSHA powered industrial truck standard and the proposed fine was $330,000. In addition to the 14 violations at that specific facility, OSHA also required enterprise-wide abatement for the other violations in question.

In the past, inspection findings usually applied to only the facility where the inspection occurred. New regulations, however, could be changing to have major implications for organizations with multiple facilities.

Join us for an in-depth discussion with attorney Tracy Moon and safety professional Abby Ferri about minimizing compliance headaches at multi-worksites and strategies to stay in compliance with the latest OSHA regulations.

Learning Objectives:
  • Interpret the recent OSHRC enterprise-wide abatement decision and determine how it could affect your multi-worksite safety program
  • Explain to senior management the implications of the recent OSHRC decision as it relates to your multi-worksite safety program
  • Consider important trends as they relate to your multi-worksite safety program resulting from the decision, such as:
  • OSHA follow-inspections and repeat violations at sister facilities
  • pursuit of enterprise-wide abatement provisions in settlement agreements
  • aggressive implementation of OSHA’s Severe Violator Enforcement Program
  • Evaluate multi-worksite safety program strategies for assuring full OSHA compliance and minimizing your organization’s exposure to enterprise-wide enforcement
  • Perform audits to identify potential areas of concern in your multi-worksite safety program
  • Use the results of internal audit findings and agency inspections to address areas of concern
  • Ensure that your facilities are properly prepared for an OSHA inspection in order to minimize exposure to enterprise-wide concerns
