How to Prepare for the New Aggressive OSHA Inspections
In 2009 there were more reported OSHA inspections than in years past. With the 2010 year in front of us printers will be faced with a revitalized and expanding OSHA presence. OSHA’s 2010 budget gives this agency a significant increase in funding and more compliance officers. This combined with a new focus on enforcement means that more printers will be inspected with more scrutiny than ever before.
OSHA will continue with more programmed inspections, mandatory follow-up inspections, as well as more inspections of companies with multiple locations. In addition OSHA is making it increasingly difficult to remove or reclassify citations and associated penalties.
This program is designed to help printers understand the scope of the new enforcement procedures and redirect their focus on the necessary compliance needs.
