Have you ever responded to an OSHA complaint? Or found yourself unprepared for an OSHA inspector showing up at your door or jobsite? Or maybe you’ve been fined for violations that are totally preventable? If you have, you’re certainly not alone. Keeping your people safe and protecting your organization while doing so often isn’t a simple task and one that, if not done properly, can put you in a precarious situation. And even if you are doing the right things to create and maintain a safe workplace, a lack of proper documentation can indicate otherwise.
In this session, national safety and OSHA training expert, Michele Mathews teaches employers how to mitigate risk, prepare for an OSHA inspection, and covers employer and employee rights during an OSHA investigation. This is a must attend session for HR and Safety Professionals.
