Why Should You Attend
Your company needs to be informed about what OSHA will request in the audit. Owners will be asked to attend, as they carry the responsibility to confirm the safety program is in OSHA Compliance.
Supervisors, HR‘s, project leads are usually required to execute the safety program. These employees almost always have a level of fear wondering if they are executing the program and that it will pass and audit and avoid the possibility of citations in the event of a serious injury or fatality.
