Let’s examine what circumstances might bring compliance officers to your location. OSHA keeps an inspection force of about twenty-one hundred officers (a number that has decreased in recent years), and they are responsible for covering more than 8 million workplaces. There are some random inspections each year, with OSHA arriving without any prior complaint or

Spotted this week: Another interesting article, from the fall of last year, about workplace safety concerns that accompany the temporary workforce. A trio of Temple University law students recently completed a report that examined on-the-job incidents related to ‘temps’. They found that the number of work-related injuries incurred by temps indicates that much more needs to be

In some of our recent Tuesday Trainings, we’ve illustrated the OSHA inspection process.

Any EHS manager can tell you that The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) is within its rights to visit and inspect their facility, and yours. Inspections can occur at any time, and they almost always take place without prior warning, though parties approached for inspection have the right to demand and review an inspection

The new year is here, and for much of the country, 2018 enters with an icy greeting. Much of the country has been gripped by bitterly cold temperatures and heavy and continuous snowfall (in record levels in some places). The remainder of this week, as people return to work, is expected to bring similar weather-related
