Recently, OSHA issued over 40,000 citations for safety violations in the workplace. In one example, a HVAC company was fined over $1.2 million for recordkeeping violations.
Imagine that OSHA showed up at your place of business today. What would you do? How would you handle the audit? Frightening perhaps to think about, but in reality, there is no need to fear an OSHA visit. I have helped many organizations comply with OSHA regulations and avoid potential fines & citations from OSHA visits.
This webinar will help attendees better understand their rights, OSHA’s enforcement process and how to document basic compliance. Your organization will never fear an OSHA visit again.
