Why Should You Attend:
An OSHA inspection can be a costly and disruptive experience for any employer, especially if that employer has not dealt with the Agency, does not have an in-house safety professional or attorney. An OSHA inspection that goes badly essentially says the employer has a defective safety program, is not sufficiently focused on the safety and health of its employees, or is willfully or flagrantly exposing its workers to harm.
This OSHA inspection webinar will cover methodology of an OSHA inspection from how establishments are targeted, how to limit the scope of an inspection or investigation, how not to self-incriminate, and when and how to appeal. We will cover the 10 most common mistakes that often lead to bad outcomes in the event of an OSHA inspection. Understanding how to avoid these (mentioned below) pitfalls will result in fewer citations and smaller penalties:

An OSHA inspection can be a costly and bad experience for any employer, especially if that employer has not dealt with the OSHA, does not have an in-house safety professional or attorney. Or do not have experience with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) inspections and do not know the Agency’s procedures and employer’s rights. The company can make mistakes that result in citations for regulatory or safety standard violations, and substantial civil penalties.
An OSHA inspection that goes badly essentially says the employer has a defective safety program, is not sufficiently focused on the safety and health of its employees, or is willfully or flagrantly exposing its workers to harm. What is worse is that other liabilities beyond normal Workers’ Compensation costs can result from an OSHA citation related to a serious injury, including a Workers’ Compensation Serious & Willful claim, civil and even criminal liability. Federal OSHA under the new Administration has already established mandatory minimum penalties for serious violations and assessed 6- and 7-figure penalties pursuant to a ramped up egregious violation enforcement. Some states are following suit with California in the lead with $25,000 penalties for serious citations ($18,000 mandatory minimum if accident-related), and a “dumbed-down” definition of a serious violation. As OSHA becomes more pervasive and aggressive, employers need to understand how to avoid the 10 most common mistakes.
The following are the standards for which OSHA assessed the highest penalties in fiscal year 2010 (October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2010): (here is the link http://www.osha.gov/dcsp/compliance_assistance/frequent_standards.html)
