Surprise, It’s OSHA!

 

How prepared would you be for an OSHA onsite safety inspection? This inspection does not stop with written documentation. Safety inspections should be conducted on an ongoing basis. It will give your supervisors and employees knowledge of potential hazards and can save your company thousands of dollars in insurance costs and claims. Onsite audits provide a comprehensive and more in-depth evaluation than mystery shop evaluations allow for. You gain credibility by using Code Red Safety as an independent, third-party company.

OSHA’s reasons for safety audits

Imminent danger situations receive top priority. An imminent danger is any condition where there is reasonable certainty that a danger exists that can be expected to cause death or serious physical harm immediately or before the danger can be eliminated through normal enforcement procedures. If a compliance officer finds an imminent danger situation, he or she will ask the employer to voluntarily abate the hazard and remove endangered employees from exposure. Should the employer fail to do this, OSHA, through the regional solicitor, may apply to the Federal District Court for an injunction prohibiting further work as long as unsafe conditions exist.
Second priority goes to the investigation of fatalities and accidents resulting in a death or hospitalization of three or more employees. The employer must report such catastrophes to OSHA within 8 hours. OSHA investigates to determine the cause of these accidents and whether existing OSHA standards were violated.
Third priority goes to formal employee complaints of unsafe or unhealthful working conditions and to referrals from any source about a workplace hazard. The Act gives each employee the right to request an OSHA inspection when the employee believes he or she is in imminent danger from a hazard or when he or she thinks that there is a violation of an OSHA standard that threatens physical harm. OSHA will maintain confidentiality if requested, inform the employee of any action it takes regarding complaints, and, if requested, hold an informal review of any decision not to inspect.
programmed inspections aimed at specific high-hazard industries, workplaces, occupations, or health substances, or other industries identified in OSHA’s current inspection procedures. OSHA selects industries for inspection on the basis of factors such as the injury incidence rates, previous citation history, employee exposure to toxic substances, or random selection. OSHA also may develop special emphasis programs that are local, regional, or national in scope, depending on the distribution of the workplaces involved. OSHA normally will conduct comprehensive safety inspections in manufacturing in those establishments with lost-workday injury rates at or above the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) national rate for manufacturing currently in use by OSHA. States with their own occupational safety and health programs may use somewhat different systems to identify industries for inspection.
Second priority goes to the investigation of fatalities and accidents resulting in a death or hospitalization of three or more employees. The employer must report such catastrophes to OSHA within 8 hours. OSHA investigates to determine the cause of these accidents and whether existing OSHA standards were violated.
