Have you ever considered the ramifications your business would face in the event that you were unprepared for an OSHA inspection? It can happen at any time – and your job as a business owner is to ensure that you are in compliance with common, expected health and safety regulations.
In its simplest form, the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH) was established to “assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women”. The law was enacted at the Federal level and allowed states to run their own safety and health programs, as long as those programs were as effective and efficient as the Federal guidelines.
