OSHA has been strengthened in its efforts to provide regulatory oversight in all types of businesses. In years gone by, OSHA was looked upon as having an effect only in manufacturing businesses. But during the past several years, OSHA has taken up the challenge of oversight and inspection in a wide range of industries beyond manufacturing, including health care, food purveyors, and trucking and more. Every business in every state with ten or more employees may be subject to OSHA oversight , with inspections and citations that loom over the bottom line. In addition, the fee for these citations has just recently been increased. Also, the public announcements and media releases about OSHA inspections and citation activities puts businesses in the public eye, sometimes in a very negative light. Attending this webinar may help ease some of that burden for those being inspected and cited.
