Occupational Safety Compliance and Loss Control Inspections are critical tools for businesses to mitigate risk, avoid interruption, and costly fines. Many companies are unsure whether they comply with OSHA Standards or may not even realize they are out of compliance. My HR Pros offers Site-Specific Audits to identify unsafe and non-compliance issues. Receive recommended corrective actions to mitigate risks to employees, occupants, the community, the environment, and business operations.
If OSHA came to your door, what’s one of the first things the inspector might ask to see? Are your written programs and plans up for that kind of scrutiny?
