OSHA Fundamentals – What Every Small Business Owner Needs to Know and Do Before, During and After an OSHA Inspection

Times have changed at OSHA. When Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis was appointed, she proclaimed that there was a “new sheriff in town.” Current OSHA head David Michaels certainly took that message to heart. Gone are the days of compliance assistance and OSHA viewing employers as “customers.” Instead, OSHA is all about enforcement. Michaels believes that high penalties, hard-hitting press releases and “regulation by shaming” are the best way to ensure that employers comply with OSHA standards. Don’t be caught unprepared and unplanned for an OSHA inspection. By taking positive steps to prepare for an OSHA inspection, you can minimize liability. Knowing what to do before, during and after an OSHA inspection can save you time and money.
