OSHA Audit and Ohio Worker Safety – How We Help Businesses
As a responsible employer, you work hard to make safety a top priority each and every day. Despite your best efforts, incidents can happen that might trigger a visit from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Not only can an OSHA investigation result in hefty fines, it can also damage your company’s reputation and make it difficult for you to gain trust in the marketplace. This can hurt your ability to win new business, as well as attract and retain employees. The good news is, at SuretyHR, we are experts at helping clients enhance workplace safety and avoid an OSHA audit. Here’s how we can help.
Mitigating Concerns Before, During and After an OSHA Inspection
A representative from OSHA might visit your facility for any number of reasons. Unfortunately, injuries sometimes occur that require an investigation. Other times, first responders, family members and hospitals might report an incident. Believe it or not, disgruntled employees sometimes file complaints to retaliate against their employer. The political climate of the day can also influence the number of OSHA audits that take place in a given year. For all of these reasons and more, we offer safety services that help clients avoid OSHA audits altogether, as well as minimize their impact when they do occur.
Proactive Action to Avoid an OSHA Audit
On-site safety reviews and proactive mock OSHA audits
In addition to helping clients develop and implement their safety plans, we perform on-site safety reviews and proactive mock OSHA audits. These services allow you to take an objective look at potential risks that can trigger an OSHA inspection at your facility. Following our safety review and mock audit, we’ll provide a confidential report of our findings, as well as recommendations for corrective actions. The bottom-line is, if there are potential issues, you’ll want to hear about them from us, not OSHA.
Quick OSHA Inspection Support
In the event that OSHA shows up at the door and begins an investigation, our clients have access to our 24-hour emergency telephone hotline for all OSHA and safety questions. We stand ready to help in real time, all the time.
Navigating an OSHA Audit Response
Post-inspection abatement and annual safety training
After an OSHA audit, we’ll recommend corrective actions to help you minimize any fines. When completed before OSHA’s follow-up visit, these actions can help reduce the cost of the fine, or eliminate it completely. In addition, as a self-insured Professional Employment Organization, we provide a myriad of on-going safety training services – helping you avoid workplace hazards and injuries that can result in a visit from OSHA.
