Commonly cited OSHA violations and safety statistics will be reviewed to give attendees an understanding of what OSHA is finding during workplace inspections. OSHA inspection protocol will be reviewed, employer and employee rights during an inspection will be covered and John will discuss what an employer can expect as a result of the inspection. John is a retired OSHA Compliance Safety and Health Officer (CSHO). He will also discuss how OSHA inspectors generally prepare for an inspection, why an employer gets targeted for an inspection, what is typically requested for review during an inspection, and what a CSHO observes for during a walkthrough of an employer’s facility.

Employers are cited for failure to train employees on workplace hazards during an inspection. An overview of the standards requiring employers to train their employees will be presented. In addition, many employers get cited for failure to comply with OSHA’s recordkeeping and reporting requirements. These requirements will also be discussed.
