Was your company one of the over 50,000 inspected by Federal or a State OSHA this year? If not, will you be prepared as OSHA steps up its enforcement this year? We will cover what triggers an OSHA inspection, what you can expect when an inspector calls on your facility, what your rights and obligations are, should you request a warrant, and what you should do during the inspection and afterwards.
Safety is a non-delegable duty - but managers cannot be everywhere all the time. A safety committee adds capability to your safety effort - more focus, more eyes and ears, more places - at no extra $$$. A Safety Committee is a joint employer and employee group established at a workplace for the purpose of workplace safety and incident reduction and prevention.
